In memory of

Raymond Briggs CBE

18 January 1934 – 9 August 2022

As we ask children to use The Snowman as inspiration and get creative, we would like to pay tribute to our friend and Patron, Raymond Briggs, who sadly died last year. Raymond was a very important part of Chestnut Tree House for many years, and we will always be grateful for his kindness and support.

We’re honoured that Raymond’s stepson, Tom, has kindly agreed to judge this year’s competition.
