Competition Results

1st June 2023

Here are the results of our latest newsletter competition…

Last week, we had three copies of John Wright’s The Observant Walker: Wild Food, Nature and Hidden Treasures on the Pathways of Britain to give away, courtesy of Profile Books. We asked:

At this time of year, the young leaves, flower buds and young flowers of Crataegus monogyna — once known as “bread and cheese” — are edible. By what name is the plant more commonly known?

And the answer is: Hawthorn. The winners are Elgiva Field, Dot Williams and Matt Morden. Your books should be with you very soon!

Thanks for all the entries. To be in with the chance of winning our next prize — a copy of Design for Today’s beautiful new re-edition of Rena Gardiner’s Portrait of Dorset — make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list. The sign-up box can be found on the right hand side of this page.
