... and, for the record, here is the result of the Doom, Gloom & Despondency Competition:
There were 13 entries with the top placings being as follows:-
1st with 99 pts Heather Redding with "Leonard Cohen Carols"
2nd with 89 pts Trish Santer with "Last Days of the Napoli"
3rd with 87 pts Phil Shrouds with "The Embalmer"
Idris Roker, the 2007 winner, decorated the trophy by putting the coffin in a mausoleum.
My thanks go to the judges: Dave Earl, Terri Messenger, Elizabeth Eggington & Sandy Waller.
Thanks also to the audience who managed to keep their faces straight for most of the time...
"Isn't it grand, boys ...!"
