Barbershopper Of The Year

The Lewis Parry Trophy

Every year, the Wayfarers Chorus members vote for their ‘Barbershopper Of The Year’ in a secret ballot.  This is the person who they consider to have made a particularly notable contribution to the club during the year.

There are no rules as to what represents a notable contribution, it could have been organising events, helping with the practices or battling through personal circumstances to attend.  The important thing is that it is somebody the members believe to be deserving of the award.

This award, the ‘Lewis Parry Trophy’ has been awarded each year since 1993 and the table below records the people who have won it.
