IN APRIL this year The Voice Of The South ran a competition asking readers to name our motorbike frog emblem.
The winner was Fern Robinson of Denmark, who suggested the name Norton.
Norton has taken up permanent residence in our pages, popping up to point out useful information and even having his own crossword, Norton’s Puzzle, to keep you on your mental toes.
The prize for naming Norton was a portrait of the winner, painted by Denmark artist and The Voice managing director, Beverley Ford.
The completed portrait was presented to Fern on August 22. “I am absolutely delighted,” Fern said. “It is a beautiful keepsake for my family. “May Norton continue to inspire the wonderful voice of our community.”
Beverley said “it was a pleasure to paint such an attractive model as Fern and she hopes it will bring pleasure for many years.”
