More success at District

Monday, February 18th, 2013
Chris Clissitt won the District Speech Contest on Sunday with his speech “Strivers” and now goes through to the National Speech Contest at Castle Donington on 27th April.


Niki Boersma was runner up in the Topics Contest to Veronica Baldwin of Halifax & Huddersfield SC, and Neil Wilson also took silver in the Evaluation Contest. The winner was Sylvia Walker of Craven SC. We understand that a holiday commitment may prevent her appearance at Castle Donington in April, so Neil is in line to take her place. Having supplied all three Vale of York contestants at District for the first time, Wetherby may now have two National finalists in the same year!

Unfortunately Neil was unavailable for the photoshoot….
