The day began by honouring the dedication and legacy left by the passing of Mrs Frances Wickens, with the Public Relations Committee presenting a perpetual trophy for the Best In Toy Group. Frances’ family members were present to receive the award and say a few words. Those present were her husband Wally, daughters Marie and Cassandra, as well as son-in-law Terry and grandson Joshua.
