Bramley Show News flash…..

Light Up Bramley Competition – the Winners

Bramley has been a joy to see over the Christmas period. So many houses produced displays to delight residents and visitors. Our first Bramley Christmas card competition created a lot of interest and we are pleased that the winner and 2 runners up have been chosen.

Photographing the displays meant dodging the rain and battling with mud but all those that fulfilled the requirements of a lit and decorated tree that would be suitable for a 2020 Bramley Christmas card were captured and an independent judge from West Berkshire Dr Carol Boulter, who is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, kindly agreed to choose the winning image.

Of the entries, Carol said she was pleased to see such a project capturing the imagination of the community. There were a wide variety of trees and bushes, including those that appealed to children and some with nature inspired decorations. In 3rd place was Anne Porter whose tastefully lit and balanced pots created a Christmassy feel. In 2nd place was the Rizik family with its bright and cheerful tree, adjacent to the lit up snowman which had family appeal, although the snowman was not taken into consideration in accordance with the entry requirements. The winner was Sarah Mitchell with her unusual, balanced, and well-lit tree, which in Carol’s opinion was a modern and stylish design and be a very suitable image to be produced on a Christmas card.

We would like to thank Carol for her time and feedback.

Next year we will hold a similar competition with some refinements. Thank you to all those who took part.
