Prizes Awarded for Talented Work


The Awards Ceremony for the village Pro Loco competitions took place at The Temple, Matlock Bath on Wednesday 25th November. The public had been voting in the art and photography competitions2015 both on line and at the exhibitions in The Pump Room of the Grand Pavilion. There was a bumper entry in both competitions but the art exceeded all expectations both in quantity and quality so much so that the Parish Council increased the number of prizes.

Chair of the Activities Committee Councillor Lorraine Keeble said that now the art covers both a wide variety of styles and the media submitted and the creativity in the photographs is to be commended.

All the prizes were presented by Andrew Pugh, Managing Director of The Heights of Abraham – one of our two major sponsors. He commented on the high standard of the all the prize winners and the work was a wonderful reflection on our village. We are also grateful to The Sir Richard Arkwright Masson Mills as our other major sponsor plus all those who sponsor the smaller special photography prizes.

All those attending enjoyed a light buffet and many commented on how much they relished the competition experience. Winning a prize was the icing on the cake. Pictures of the prize winners with Andrew and their work can be seen on our website at here.

The 2016 competitions open in January 2016.
