Club Speech Contest 2021/22

Friday, November 5th, 2021

Neil Wilson retained the club speech trophy on Thursday 4th November with a speech entitled “Playing the Game”, in which he extolled the virtues and benefits of participating in sport. He previously won the trophy in 2019, with 2020 being a fallow year owing to lockdown restrictions.

John Holian was runner up with a speech entitled “Who do you think you are?” which explored the premise that you can anything you want to be.

The judge was Chris Clissitt. Neil and John will represent the club at the Vale of York Area Speech Contest on 6th February 2022 in York.

The evening also featured a debut from our newest member, Jan Seymour,  who delivered a most entertaining speech entitled “This is me.”
