ORGANISERS of the the Housman Society’s annual Poetry Reading Competition believe the standard of competing pupils was the best yet.

The Artrix hosted the competition last Thursday, November 15 and Bromsgrove District Council Civic Head Janice Boswell, in giving away the prizes, was glowing in her praise of all participants. 

George Freeman won the sixth form prize with a brilliantly assured performance of Housman’s Grenadier and Spoz’s “I can’t Rap”, but it was not enough to win him the Housman Cup which was awarded to Emily Collie for her moving interpretation of Housman’s “The laws of God, the laws of man”.
