“I will treasure this prize which has been an in joke ever since we moved into the premises which originally belonged to the Bargain Centre who sold these outrageous oversized ladies knickers.”

Cathy said: “I achieved what I set out to do which was to have fun, get people involved and highlight all the good things people do in this village.”
