This year we will be running two competitions although this may change as the current pandemic progresses. The closing dates mentioned below will depend on any revision of the fete date. 

“Paint a Pebble” Competition

This is for children in Primary School age group. Pebbles can be decorated in any style.
Entries for this competition can be handed in on the morning of the fete by 11am, along with an entry form, available from the competition stand on the day.

There will be two age groups:
· Infants and Lower primary school age: for children up to and including year three.
· Upper primary school age: for children in years four, five and six.

Each pebble will be allocated a number, so the judge (yet to be announced) will not know who has painted which pebble.
Judging will be on the day, and announced on the day.


Photo competition: ‘Countryside Watch’

for flora, fauna and landscape of Britain

Last year the number of entrants to the photo competition was down on previous years, and at one point we thought that we may give it a miss this year, but when I visited the children of Oak Class they wanted us to continue the photo competition so that they can enter it!

So….there will be three age groups-

· Primary school age: for all children of primary school age
  (in this category only photographs of pets can be included.)
· Secondary school age: for children and teenagers in secondary school
· Sixth form and above, including adults, up to Silver Surfers of any age.

Submissions will be accepted from Monday 13th April, up to three photos per entrant by email to this address – ( help can be provided for those without access to a computer who wish to submit to the competition )

CLOSING DATE: midnight 13th June 2020

In order to allow for the judging, printing and mounting time needed for this competition, the closing date has to be two weeks prior to the date of the fete.

Thank you to Oak Class at Kirtlington Primary School for their help with these competitions,
