The Barrow Evening Mail is proud to announce that the Village has won a national award. ‘Crazy Golf Course Free Village Of The Year’. The sponsors of the competition were pleased to hand over the trophy to the Parish Council Chairman at a star-studded concert.
The evening began with U2 taking to the Band Hall stage, with their brand new single, ‘Crazy Golf Courses Are The Bain Of Our Lives.’ Next up, the Whinfield Gardens Pogo Dance Formation Team dazzled the audience with acrobatics beyond their age, using a medley of classic Sex Pistols tracks. After a brief performance from the DSS (Dalemount Station Singers), the trophy was brought out onto the stage. The 10ft solid gold representation of Venus eating cheese brought a gasp of astonishment. The Chairman beamed throughout the handover. Addressing the audience, Askam’s Glorious Leader said he was proud to accept the award on behalf of the workers and looks forward to melting it down and going to Bali on the proceeds.
