Each was presented with a cheque for ,1,050 at the Wheatsheef public house Writtle on December 19th 1997.


The Stumblers

Four and twenty drunkards, trotting through the dark
Drinking time is over, they’re ready for a lark
Rude gestures to a lady
Moonies to the sky
So watch the wall my darling
While the Wheatsheaf men go by

The Wheatsheaf now is closing and drinking time is through
So it
=s down for cobra lager and a vindaloo
Then stumbling
>cross the village green
=s time to drop the fly
So don
=t touch the wall my darling
Since the Wheatsheaf men passed by
