The Mary Page Trophy was given to Worcester EG in 1968. It is awarded for the most popular exhibit chosen by visitors to an exhibition.
The Meadows’ Trophy was originally presented to the branch by Mrs. Meadows in 1963. It was first awarded following a competition for a tea cosy to be made in any material! The title for the competition is announced in April and the entries are displayed at the December meeting when members vote for the winner. As well as holding the trophy for a year, the winner is also presented with a prize. In addition, a second piece is chosen as the Chairman’s Choice!
Below you may find information about some of the winners of these competitions in previous years.
As usual, at our December meeting we had our annual competition for the Meadows’ Trophy. The subject had been given out to members about six months previously. This year it was ‘The Sea’ and it inspired 13 members to enter. The entries were very varied and included embroideries of a seashell, beach hut scene and underwater. All were of a very high quality and it was very hard to choose a winner. The members took it in turns to go up and study the entries and then voted for their preferred piece anonymously. Every entry got at least one vote; the winner, Sue P., took the prize with eight votes. The runner up, Jacky, with seven votes, was awarded the Chairman’s prize.
