THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUR BOROUGH RECEIVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE

28th March 2022

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee cannot go unnoticed and we are sending her the best gift around and we can’t wait. She’ll be receiving a fantastic book of poetry from the young people in our local community.

During February, we launched a competition to ask the younger generation of Enfield to put their pen to paper and create their best poems to celebrate Her Majesty’s reign and all things royal.

Our very own Retail Manager, Rebecca Bird, said, “It’s not very often we get to celebrate something as huge as this as a country. Especially right now, when things have been so tough for people, we wanted to do something memorable.

“We will not only be creating a fabulous book of poetry but we are also happy to share that all proceeds from the book will be donated to local charity Time to Help, whom we are delighted to support.”

We had a panel of four judges, including Jodie Webber (a local author) and Yusuf Kur, Chief Operating Officer at Time to Help. We were amazed by such wonderful poetry from our budding local young writers with our youngest entrant being only 5 years old.

We spent hours judging the great work of our local community and in line with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we have now chosen 70 of the best poems to be published.

We cannot wait for you all to see the final book which will be sent to Her Majesty, all published poets and will also be available to purchase on Amazon.
