Our Mary Course Competition Entries

16th June 2017
The Mary Course Challenge
 
A fund was set up to commemorate the life and preserve the memory of Mary Course.  Mary was a member of South Cambridgeshire District Council for Meldreth for 21 years and represented the Council on the Cambridge and County Folk Museum and the Farmland Museum at Denny Abbey. 
 
The Mary Course Prize is awarded annually at Meldreth Primary School.  The prizes of at least £50 will be to pupils  who have excelled in a project on Mary’s interests and loves – the countryside, crafts, local history and the community. 
 
Every year the challenge theme changes and prizes have been awarded for essays, poems, paintings, photographs, maps or models based on Meldreth life.
