This trophy was won by the donor’s mother, Adrianne Brazier of Osborne Road, Romford. She attended dances at a hall in Bush Elms, Hornchurch and won this trophy in 1950 at a competition held at Suttons. She and her partner Alan Johnson came second, but Adrianne was nonetheless very pleased with herself according to her diary entry for the day.
