The primary school age category was won by Isabella Garlick from St Thomas More School in Berkhamsted.

The top three in the secondary category were from John F Kennedy School in Hemel Hempstead – and the winner was Eve Attwood from Year 7. She had written a story about a boy coming to terms with his father’s impending death.

The adult winner was Vanessa Horn.

Berkhamsted estate agent Aitchison’s will match the £757 raised by £1 entry fees to the competition, and it will all go to Northchurch-based The Hospice of St Francis.

The judges were authors Catherine Alliot and Jonathan Stroud, and Berkhamsted-based children’s publishers Make Believe Ideas.
