Tabby Kerwin to take on judging role at Diggle
The Diggle Whit Friday committee has announced that Tabby Kerwin will take over the role as adjudicator for their famous contest this year. The appointment follows the sad death of Tabby’s husband Simon, who himself was the adjudicator at the event on a number of occasions.
Commenting on the news, Tabby said, "Over the years it's always been a huge pleasure to get to know the hard-working team who organise the Diggle contest, and Simon and I spent a great deal of time working on judging systems which have been put in place there.
To take over from him is something I will cherish as it will be very close to my heart. The organising committee was clear that that recognised my own musical experience in asking me to take on the role. That was very humbling and I can't wait to spend the night listening to a line-up of great bands.
I was also informed that they believed I was the first female adjudicator in the 135 years of the event — so no pressure then!"
