Odes and imagined adventures were among the entries submitted
Gravesend Library has been ‘overwhelmed’ by the response to its Write for the Queen competition to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.
Entrants between the ages of six and eighty submitted Odes to the Queen and imagined adventures, while others supplied stories about what she might do on her day off, including making visits to Primark and McDonalds.
Customer Services officer Glenn Mount said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the high standard, the imagination and creativity of the entries, and the hard work and time spent by the competitors.”
Winners’ prizes and certificates will be presented by outgoing mayor Michael Wenban at the grand final, which will be held at Gravesend Library on Thursday, June 9.
