Hi Shiobhan and Jacqui, lovely to read about your connection with this trophy. We are continuing to publish the Wyndham and Districts Collection online. There are still some photographs from the Piping and Dancing Society to be put up. Happy to see you have enjoyed exploring the collection so far :)

Jemma is my daughter and I danced at these comps regularly myself. Very cool to see these memories being preserved.

I have fond memories of dancing at these competitions. Jemma Seque is my niece and at the time she won this cup she was my pupil.
