Have your say

A TEENAGER won a top drama award from the Stamford Shakespeare Company.

Thirteen-year-old Ellie Clayton, of Barnack, won the Joyce Windsor Cup for showing exceptional progress and achievement to Tolethorpe Youth Drama. It is presented each year in memory of Joyce Windsor who was a founder tutor of Tolethorpe Youth Drama. Its principal Carol King said: “Ellie is a most deserving recipient of this award. We are very proud of her.”

The cup was presented to Ellie by Stamford Shakespeare Company representative Derek Windsor, who sadly has since died.
