VE Day 75 School Poetry Competition Results

VE Day 75 School Poetry Competition Results

Town Council Leader, Cllr Angelique Foster and Town Mayor, Cllr Lilian Deighton were delighted to be this year's judges of the Dronfield Arts Festival School Poetry Competition, which this year was VE Day themed.

Students of The Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School should be really proud of themselves for sending in some brilliantly creative poems. They really captured the wartime theme and gave a glimpse into what life must have been like for families and soldiers at the end of the Second World War.

First place
"Finally it was done" by Rihanna

"VE Day Sonnet" by Dylan
"I miss you" by Alex

Fourth place
"Tomorrow's Gone" by Chloe

The organisers of the Dronfield Arts Festival and the Town Council would like to express a huge thank you to everyone involved in this year's competition.

When current restrictions are lifted, all the poems will be placed on display to the public in Dronfield Library.
