Jackie was rightfully recognised as the Best Dressed Town Crier, which, upon reflection, was never in doubt.

She also won the Home Town Ambassador award; a special crystal bell award from Ilminster Consort for Best Woman Overall Winner and lastly the Joint Best Dressed award, which Jackie won with her consort John Hart.

Kingsteignton Town Council, as well as several of her contemporaries, congratulated Jackie on her win.
