The 2016 Area 55 Contests took place at Eastbourne
On April 2nd 2016, Eastbourne Speakers Club were pleased to host the Area 55 Contest. By 2pm a good number of Toastmasters from the five clubs in Area 55 gathered to take part. These contests do not happen without a lot of work by many members.
Each club provided us with an International Speech Contestant, Barry Miles from Brighton & Hove, Dec Cluskey from the Eastbourne Club, Al Dixon from Battle Club and Richard Pimm from Tunbridge Wells and Jeff Grace from Lewes Club.
They had all previously won the Club Competition. Jeff Grace from Lewes Speakers’ Club won the International Speech Contest and he will be going onto compete in the Division H Contest representing Area 55. Claire Carpenter from the Eastbourne Club won the Evaluation Contest and will also be going onto compete at the Division Contest it is being held on April 9th in Woking.
