The day I got the email to say I had received a Highly Commended Prize for my poem from the Bridport Arts Centre was like finding the caramel sweet in the box of Cadbury’s Roses, after years of getting the slightly yucky orange, strawberry and coffee ones.

We decided to make hay while the sun shone and make the journey from Ireland to attend the prize-giving, we packed up Granny, 3 year old and husband and hit the sky and road early on the day of the big event. We were all so delighted we did, the lunch and presentations were just lovely, we were made to feel so welcome. It was a real treat to hear the judges and prizewinners speak and read from their work, forget the Roses we were having fancy posh chocolate now.
