Paul said: “It was a very close run race. For the first four rounds I had been trailing the front-runners and it was not until the last round that I just nudged ahead.

“I was very lucky; it could have gone to anyone of three or four members. Winning this year is particularly rewarding as the last two rounds of the competition had to be run “virtually” with remote judges, one being locked down in New Zealand!”
