"Huge thank you to everyone who supported our writing competition, either by entering and judging as it was no easy task.

"We hope you enjoy your books and prizes and that this has inspired you to write further."

Mayor of Ely Mike Rouse, who is also an author, helped judge the competition on October 24.
