• Two Parish Competitions

    July 1st, 2020 by Stan Pilling in General News

    We’re running two competitions which we hope will generate a strong community spirit.

    Creative Covid Competition – Use your creative talent to capture your experiences of Covid 19 you could win a £50.00  in Arbory and Rushen Parish’s “Creative Covid 19 Community Competition”! This community art project for the parishes will hopefully record for posterity our many experiences of living through this remarkable time. All we are looking for is something you have created which would fit on an A4 sheet of paper that reflects your experiences of living through the Covid 19 lockdown and restrictions. Any medium is acceptable; maybe a short story, poem, drawing, painting, mosaic or even a photograph of a floral art display. Once restrictions allow, all entries will be displayed in an exhibition in Arbory Parish Hall. There are 2 categories one for adults and one for children with plenty of really good prizes. Once your creative piece is done, take a photograph and email it to [email protected] and your entry will be posted onto Arbory and Rushen Parish Commissioners’ Facebook pages. Deadline for submission of entries is 31st July 2020.

    Garden Competition – During the Covid 19 Lockdown many of you will have been out in the good weather making your garden look beautiful.  If you are happy with what you have achieved, you could be the winner of the first ever Arbory and Rushen Parish Commissioners’ Garden Competition. Judging will take place  during w/c 13th July.  Participation is by entry only.  Criteria for judging is form, planting variety and combinations, colour, and maintenance. There are two categories: Best Garden in Arbory Parish and Best Garden in Rushen Parish. Winners receive £50.00 Ballagawne Nurseries Vouchers and there will also be awards for 2nd and 3rd places. Deadline for entries is Monday 6th July 2020. To enter please contact Jane Glover by email [email protected] or by phoning 492010.
