The Poot competitions attracted a lot of entries and voting during the exhibition -we decided on a purely democratic method of judging - everyone got to vote!
In the end the winners of the adult photography competition were Lynn Allen with her wonderful sheepy snowy tee, and 2nd was Gary Grant with his alpine view of Clach na Ben. In the poetry stakes, the overall winner was Doreen Christie with her poem - Where I live - we were all so impressed with it when we received the entry it was also published in the book - well done Doreen - that's what happens when you're organised and get your entry in early!
2nd was Pat Lawson's entertaining tale of a Finzean burns Supper!. Poetry must run in the Christie Clan as Doreen's grandson 10 year old Kieran Strachan won the children's poetry competition!-Finzean sisters Evie and Robyn Falvey coming 2nd & 3rd respectively.
First in the children's photography was Amy Christie's beautiful rainbow taken outside her frontdoor in Finzean, 2nd was Zoe Paul's view up into a tree in her garden in Birse and 3rd Jemma Christie's Finzean road sign.
The drawing prizes went to Richard Davidson for his very good drawing of Birse Church and Calum Kitching's lovely drawing of his own front door in Birse. 3rd prize went to Cara Blackhall from Ballogie with her excellent map of Finzean and a special prize went to 6year old Stuart Patterson for his incredibly mature drawing of Clach na Ben!
Well done to all - pictured wearing their Lottery t-shirts are the prize winners who attend Finzean school.
