In 1984 the "Rose Trophy" was presented to the Suffolk Guild by Anita and Maurice Rose to be awarded to the winners of this competition. St Mary le Tower have won the trophy seventeen times since, but did not enter a band this year. The South East District has won twice, St Margaret's Ipswich and Grundisburgh once each. Only in 2005 did the trophy leave the South East District when it was awarded to the North West District.
