Success for Sam at District Young Chef

I’m delighted to say that Sam McGibbon, who won the 2019-20 Devizes Area Young Chef Competition back in November of last year (click HERE for details) and was therefore invited to take part in the District 1200 competition, has since also been asked to take part in the Regional Competition. Well done Sam! This is a great achievement and one to make Sam, and all his family and supporters proud, not to mention Devizes Rotary!

Enjoy the Regional Final Sam, and all the very best of luck!

Thanks once again to the four competitors – Hannah Blacker, George Maslen, Jessica Raja and Samuel McGibbon – for all their hard work, and many congratulations to the winner Sam, who at the end of the day was crowned the Devizes Area Rotary Young Chef Champion of 2019.

Below are some more ‘photos taken during the event.
