An intriguing and heart warming tale of cider, people and a visit to Switzerland, not to mention the loss of a 10/- note, has won the 2013 Spyke Golding Literary Award. The winner, chosen by the panel of independent judges, was Anna Ludlow.
Anna is not new to writing having had articles on her other interests and experiences published in magazines and on-line. Her story was inspired by a deeply affectionate memory of her late mother and was chosen for its positive and life affirming themes.
Shown are Anna with her award, and judges Amanda and Mick Bajcar, Castle Rock’s Colin Wilde, Steve Westby, chairman, Nottingham CAMRA and Amy Naylor-Morrell (third left) from the Waterstones Nottingham bookshop who presented Anna with a £30 book voucher.
Anna says: “I wrote this recollection last year but was unable to submit it due to an unexpected stay in hospital. The delay made the success all the sweeter.”
