Last but not least is the People’s Choice Award, this year, we had the unusual event that the People agreed with the judges and Daniel Sharples actually had the most votes. In that instance, we defer to the second choice which was this charming painting by Rodney Walmsley. Many thanks to our sponsor Mr Jinkinsons Optician.
