Well, they’d waited long enough and our judges for the online karaoke competition organised by Horrabridge Times and London Inn were ready …

Village notables Sean Lakeman and Kathryn Roberts took time out from touring the folk rock scene to help us go all multimedia with a video competition filmed at Horrabridge Summer Fair.

They said: “Well done to all of them for having the guts to take part. Hopefully more people will enter next year.”

We hope so too. Meanwhile, the London Inn’s £50 prize for the online section of the competition had to be won fair and square by somebody.

The ad hoc vote in the park on filming day, was for Millie Salisbury, putting a bit of soul into a Cranberries number.

The professional judges put her in second place, though. They preferred a harmony duo performance by Eloise Coleman and Willow Prouse, both 11 or so, and friends through their parents, who are involved with Horrabridge Scouts.

In third place was an even younger performer, Lewis, a professional in the making, who did a well rehearsed and moving job on the musical number Any Dream Will Do.

Jacob Woodbridge Harris came fourth, bless him, in spite of maximum marks for cheerfulness in the face of discovering he can’t actually sing.
