Cheddar Medals 2013

May 9, 2013
We are really pleased with our medal design for the Cheddar Gorge Challenge 2013 medals this year.



The medal ribbons will be hung from the X marks on the above design and the ribbon colours will match the enamelling of each medal. The medals will piece together like a jigsaw to give those who complete the Cheddar Challenge, a very special set of medals indeed!

Sign up for the Challenge, you know you want to ;-)
