Gwen Stevens, who directed Dennis Potter's Blue Remembered Hills at Trinity Theatre, Cowes a year ago was presented with a certificate to mark the high quality of the show by Islander Rita Boffin on behalf of the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.

It was presented following the CAODS play, Outside Edge, last Thursday. Gwen, on stage with the cast of Outside Edge - many of whom had been in Blue remembered Hills received an ovation from the large Audience.

In accepting her accolade, she said: "We had great fun and it was a really brilliant play to do."
