Huxley Cup 2021

I am pleased to write and confirm that you (Hexham Town WI)  have won the Huxley Cup competition 2021 – many congratulations.

A copy of this letter will be sent to your federation informing them of your success in this competition.  The Huxley Cup will be presented to the Hexham Town WI at the Annual Meeting next year and it is usual for a representative to collect the cup on behalf of the winning WI. You will receive an invitation and further details regarding these arrangements from the NFWI London Office nearer the time.

The NFWI received 14 entries from 11 federations.  Please find below your critique, written by the Judges.

 ‘Great design which uses the simple design principle of symmetry, Rhythm and flow is created by repeated planting in the scheme. One member of the team even did a course on how to draw a planting plan. True commitment. Outstanding. It is hoped that the ‘hypothetical’ location near the Abbey, becomes a reality. Praise to all involved in this clear, translatable scheme. Many congratulations on achieving an extremely well deserved first place in this years; Huxley Cup’

The results of the competition will be announced in WI Life.  The results, along with the images of this year’s competition entries will be available to download from My WI shortly.  Please note that the NFWI will hold the right to use images of the winning entries as appropriate; entries retained for display at the Annual Meeting 2021, will be returned by the NFWI after use.

Thank you for entering the competition and once again, many congratulations.

Yours sincerely
