"Considering all the problems for this year the standard of the Well Dressings has been amazing and the interpretation of Planets and Stars has been revelatory.
It has been a difficult verging on impossible decision to award the Chairman's Cup and I have therefore given it to Phil Ironside for an amazingly successful portrayal of the theme active day and night. Phil has been a stalwart enabler of Well Dressing for most this century.
Three other dressings, Hayslad, Malvhina & Willow Spring are of the same calibre so I have added to their Gold Award the accolade "Highly Commended by the Chairman".
I'd like to thank all the Well Dressers for their inspirational efforts."
Please visit the Dressed Wells.

Rev Becky Elliott gave a lovely Blessing of the Waters at St James's Churchyard Spout, West Malvern, to start the Malvern Well Dressing Festival 2021.
Revd Rod Corke gave this lovely Blessing from Malvhina. He included the poem of Edmund Rea, his 1612 predecessor, before giving a concluding thankful Blessing to the Waters.
Do come, find and enjoy the Wells, enjoy the outside, enjoy release from lock-down.
We would love to see you.
