Our ridiculously modest Tanya Aydon was quietly awarded joint first prize in the Barbara Pym Society’s short story competition, for her piece ‘Unexpected Flowers’, on Saturday 31st August.

This involved lunch at St. Hilda’s, Oxford, and all sorts of jollities that we will have to pry out of Tanya with a snail fork. She has such an elegant, generous, dazzling talent, we can only marvel at the care with which she arranges the bushel. We are terribly proud of her!
