Children’s Painting Competition

In addition to the Junior Class Competitions as detailed in the Schedule, there is another Painting Competition for children of primary school age (up to Year 6 – and the children who have just left primary school this term).  This year the competition is open to ALL children in the three parishes (St Ewe, Gorran and Caerhays).  This can be through a local club or individually.  The theme this year is A Character from a Cornish story e.g. Mousehole Cat, The Mermaid etc.  Paintings can be in any media and should be A4 in size.  Entry is free and The Lobbs Farm Shop have kindly offered to collect entries for us.  The closing date is the shop closing time on Sunday 4th August 2019.  All paintings will be judged by Kevin Nicholls, a local artist.  Please note that we have already received entries from the children who attend Gorran School.  We look forward to receiving lots of entries.  No entry form needed, just your full name, school year and contact number on the back of the painting.  Please note that this is the only competition that is judged BEFORE the day of the Country Fair.  All other competition entries should be entered via the entry form in the Schedule (see below).

Near the end of the afternoon we have the annual Tug of War competition. This is open to all visitors/locals where you will need a team of 8 to compete. It is great fun and adds a competitive edge to the days events. Please turn up with your team of 8 on the day – no formal entry required. If you are one or two people short, don’t worry as I’m sure we can find willing participants to join your team. Current trophy holders are The Crown Inn, St Ewe. Come along and test your strength against them this year!
