TWO Fenland students have been rewarded for their neat handwriting in a competition as part of the East of England Country Show.

Megan Doyle and Ellie Farquhar, both Year 7 students at the Cromwell Community College in Chatteris, picked up second and third places respectively in the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother's Handwriting Competition.

Both Megan and Ellie received complementary family tickets to the three-day show, held last weekend at the East of England Showground in Peterborough, and were presented with a certificate and book voucher each at the show.
