My First Poem Winners 2016

We're delighted to announce our My First Poem 2016 winner as Amberley Hall Nursery in Bristol, who've been awarded the £1,000 first prize to spend on their garden and purchasing outdoor toys for their children.

“This is brilliant news for our nursery, we are so happy and proud, our certificate is right by the front door for everyone to see when they come in. The money will be spent on our garden and outdoor toys for the children, thank you very, very much!” – Renee Bowley, Nursery Manager

As we received hundreds of requests to win the money, picking one winner was much harder than we ever thought it would be. It was a real team effort; editors, typists, customer services and directors read the letters. We couldn't pick just one winner, so decided to award several more smaller prizes too!

We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Walker Books, Bonnier Publishing and Harper Collins for being Lending Library sponsors to three settings. The brilliant sponsors have kindly provided the nurseries with books to start their own libraries!

Thank you so much to every setting who entered, we hope you enjoyed taking part and we look forward to hearing from you in 2017.
