Congratulations to William Parker for my

favourite caption from last month shown below

the cartoon. Other close contenders were Tony

Reed's 'Oh no! The sit out pair have mixed up the

hands again'; Reg Tripp's 'If we all sung from the

same hymn sheet we'd win more team events'; and

Barry Ransley's 'Typical confusion at the

Christmas Individual event'.

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!
