Awards Evening

Honiton Spinners held their annual celebration evening at The Heathfield Inn on Tuesday
evening. After the AGM and buffet, teams were challenged with a very engaging quiz written
by club members Claire Barrow and John Burgess. After that, club awards were presented.
This is the first time that trophies have been awarded, so there was much excitement. As
expected, the results were very close, but the winners were Mark Griffin (Monthly Award),
Malcolm Street (Huff ‘n’ Puff), Lin Grady (Queen of Members), Tony Peek (King of Members)
and John Burgess (Members’ Member). The awards recognise contributions from members
who went above and beyond for the club, offering support and encouragement to others.
Jennie Sleeman, who is stepping down as Chair having led the club since it began in 2016,
wished good luck to Tony in his new role as Chair of Honiton Spinners. She also thanked the
club for presenting her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a generous gift voucher –
which she will enjoy spending!
