   Unfortunately I have to confess that the list of prize winners from the day appears to have been 'incorrectly filed' (possibly in the bin!) when we

   cleared up at the end of the day. Apologies for that, but I can assure you that everyone got their prizes and that all of the Silent Auction lots have

   been delivered to, or have been collected by their respective winning bidders.
