Some of the small trophies from over the years


The Small Trophies have been presented at the Jack Bloor Races since 1985. David Walker made these excellent and unique trophies until 2006 when James Fonquernie agreed to continue with the same theme. Each year a different Ilkley Moor rock carving is used for the basis of the design. The design for the annual Jack Bloor trophies was inspired by the Swastika Stone (Checkpoint 2), the most famous rock carving on Ilkley Moor.

James Fonquernie has been making the Jack Bloor small trophies for over 10 years since 2006 and he is now 82 years old (2017). 
James knew Pat Bloor, he lived in the same street and they were members of the same gardening club so when David Walker stepped down from making the small trophies, James volunteered. 
James has always liked making things, he owned an engineering company for 18 years and he still finds pleasure in making and mending things. His garden is like a sculpture park it's full of stuff from flower arrangements to things he's collected and placed there, he has made 5 arbours and won many prizes for them. 
Thanks to James we still have small trophies.
