Short Story Competition

We were recently invited to take part in a Short Story Writing Competition by The Cedars Care Home in Bourne and had such a high quality of entries, with 2 students,

Tiana and Riley,  going on to win 1st and 3rd places. They each won a book token for The Bourne Bookshop, and vital house points!

Thank you to all students and staff who entered. 

Tiana's story was commended for her uplifting and moving theme and her beautiful creation of setting. You can read the story by clicking here

Some of the residents visited CRA to award the prizes and commented on how much they had enjoyed the stories - we hope to develop further competitions with members of the community so watch this space!
