A number of competitions were organised to help get everyone in a festive mood. Some were just for fun while others resulted in specially commissioned and engraved Corfe Castle Diamond Jubilee Medals and Corfe Castle Rosettes for the winners and runners up. Our Official Souvenir Programme Draw and our Grand Prize Draw both had cash prizes and our Grand Prize Draw also had a good selection of vouchers to win as well.
