The Daphne Moss Page

Daphne Moss was a long time member and the Chair for many years. Her husband has supported the Group for some time and in gratitude for his assistance and help and in memory of Daphne we are holding a meeting each year devoted to her forte - non-fiction writing.

2018 Daphne Moss Non-fiction competition:


On the Second Daphne Moss Evening (12th November 2018)


There were five prizes in 2018. 16 entries, every one of then well written. Members who had read everything voted for 5 from 16 and the voting gave 6 winners. Two were equal with 3 votes each and the £50 was split two ways, the rest received £50 each. Well done. A very close competition to judge.
