Congratulations to Tony Reed for my

favourite shown under April's cartoon below.

Other close contenders were Lydia Stanford's If

you are going down, go down quickly; Tony

Paine's With time running out, Humpty made the

mistake of going for a jump bid; Reg Tripp's It's

almost time for that cracking play; and Alison

Wall's You'll be shattered when the time's up.

Prestat donates a box of its very superior

chocolates as a prize. The brightly coloured

boxes, and the scrumptious contents, are the

epitome of good taste - in all the best ways!
