Jennings and Darbishire – Holmes and Watson, Jeeves and Wooster, Ant and Dec (no – they were taken by our very own Joshua and Adam, or was it Adam and Joshua?)… Laurel and Hardy? Yes – a better fit. What fun we the audience had, and, not withstanding a little necessary nerves, what fun the readers had too. Bea, Tanya-Yasmine and Elise in Year 7; Jack, Henry, Hugo and Alexander in Year 8; Medomfo, Arthur, Annabel and Tom in Year 9; and Ant and Dec and Josh and Adam to round the story off. Was there a thief? Was the laundry ever laundered (because any ill-gotten gains could no longer be)? Was the egg still on the tie? And did the hic haec the hoc? What is certain is the Jennings won an event at Sports Day (and Darbishire may have done so too), and that it was all caught on camera (not just any camera… a gazillion smasheroo or some such) by Lord Field Marshal Sir Trumpington-Topsy-Turvy KCMG DCO MC and bar. I think that was his name….
Spiffingly splendid – our most heartiest congratulations to the winners Tanya-Yasmine Huq, Henry King, Arthur Bartlett and the overall champion Tom Scoggins, and our thanks to hosts Josh Cole and Adam Wildbore, judges Ella Jerman-Riddell, Madeline Upton, Laura Lindsay-Smith and Miss Crossland, and organisational supremo (with a flair for some perfectly chosen pictures) Dr Renshaw.
