In attendance were the Mayor of Wirral Councillor Gerry Ellis and Mayoress Mrs Margaret Ellis. Julie and Rich Salmon said: “We are delighted to have received so many outstanding entries for this year’s poetry extravaganza and we hope that next year, as it would have been a special year for Chris, we will receive even more. Once again we would like to thank Diane Mitchell, Wirral Library Service and the Judges for all their hard work which has ensured that the competition has grown so successfully since it was launched in 2010.” Cllr Chris Meaden, Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Leisure said: “This year’s event attracted over 700 entrants, which is an incredible achievement and a testament to the work of the Chris Salmon Foundation in creating something so positive from something so tragic.” The 2013 Anthology with foreword written by Andy McCluskey of OMD and compiled from the winning entries is now available to purchase for £5 from either the Foundation website www.chrissalmon.org.uk or from Wirral Libraries.
