Sir — We re­ally en­joy our event­ing and when my son has been lucky enough to win a prize, we at­tend the prize-giv­ing and thank the spon­sors. Rosettes are then proudly pinned above the Aga in the kitchen for the year.

So why, when spon­sors are so thin on the ground, do some prizewin­ners not bother to turn up or leave im­me­di­ately when given their prize? It is so em­bar­rass­ing for the or­gan­is­ers and the spon­sors.

But there was a lovely moment last year at Dauntsey Park — Beanie Stur­gis or­dered prizewin­ners who’d col­lected theirs and started to walk off to re­turn to clap the rest. So come on prizewin­ners — be po­lite and at­tend the prize-giv­ings. Carol Row­cliffe Tiver­ton, Devon
