The standard in this year’s Colne Writers’ Circle competition was “the best yet”, according to local historian and judge Geoff Crambie.
The annual event was held at Primet Bridge Community Centre on Saturday, and was well-attended by members and primary school children.
Mr Crambie, who judged the “Short Story” category, said: “The standard was incredible. I have been marking the competition for 20 years, and it is the best I have ever known.”
