The Yorkshire heat was gripping! North Halifax B won clearly but then there was a three-way tie for second place. The names of the winners are: Hannah, Megan, Kit & Isobel. Placings for second and third needed to be decided by sudden death questions. The outcome saw Harrogate Grammar placed second and Scissett Middle School B claimed third spot. Author Martyn Bedford awarded the prizes.
One of the remarkable individual achievements was accomplished by Hannah from the North Halifax B team who was asked to enter as a last minute ring-in when another member was indisposed.
Thirty-six teams entered today. The wonderful team from Kirklees Customer and Exchequer Service and Booksplus Schools' Resource Service coordinated the event with smooth professionalism. My thanks also go to Schoolhouse Books for their sponsorship and to the Kirklees Council staff for their help on the day at the Cleackheaton Hall. Also thanks are due to Walker Books for donating the book prizes.
