EAST OF ENGLAND AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY, founded 1797

Perfect partnership renewed for Royal handwriting awards

The East of England Agricultural Society is delighted to announce the renewed partnership with A.T. Cross for the 2020 Queen Mother’s Handwriting Awards.

A.T. Cross is an international manufacturer of pens and accessories and was established by Richard Cross in 1846. The partnership with the East of England Queen Mother’s handwriting awards is a perfect match and sees the main prizes of the finest Cross personalised pens gifted to the winning children.

Organised and managed by the Agricultural Society, the handwriting awards is open to Key stage 1, 2 and 3 students alongside students with particular disabilities across schools in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire and Peterborough. Students are invited to write a particular poem varying in the difficulty of punctuation and grammar based on their education level.

The aims are to encourage and recognise the importance of literacy skills amongst school children, especially in a digital age. It is important to retain and remember something which was close to the Queen Mother.

“It’s fantastic to have Cross involved with the Awards and we are very grateful to them for their continued support,” said East of England Agricultural Society’s Marketing Manager, Kerry Buttriss.
