Words of Wisdom | Abbeyfield Poetry Competition
The winners have been announced for the Abbeyfield Poetry Competition!
At Abbeyfield, we take great pride in recognising the exceptional creative talents of the whole Abbeyfield family, whatever they may be. We recently ran a poetry competition for our residents, which saw over 70 excellent submissions. Nine winners were chosen, listed below.
One of our judges was a published poet and former Abbeyfield Chief Executive, Foster Murphy. The Foster Murphy Special Recognition Award, named in his honour, was given to Valley of the Moon, by Robert Brunning of Abbeyfield House, Hadleigh.
Well done to all of our Abbeyfield Poets for taking part!
