Fairlynch has a great competition for Budleigh Salterton children to create a recycled crown for the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III. The competition is sponsored by Budleigh Salterton Lions Club. Winners will not only get vouchers to spend on crafting goodies, but will also see their crowns displayed in the museum until the end of October.
As the King is a committed environmentalist the crowns must be built only of materials and items found in East Devon recycling boxes and bags. No sharp items to be used please! They must be a strong enough structure to be worn and be all the child’s own work. The competition is open to children living in Budleigh Salterton only and there are three age categories:
Age groups: 5-8 9-12 13-16
Prizes: The Mayor of Budleigh Salterton will present the winners in each category with a £50 voucher and the runners-up with a £25 voucher, in a ceremony at Fairlynch on Friday 28th April at 16.30.
Unfortunately we do not have space at the museum to receive and store the crowns, so entries will be judged by emailed photo.
To Enter: Please take a close-up photograph of the finished crown either on display or on the head of the child who has made it and email it to:
with the name, address and age of the entrant, by the Closing Date of Monday 17th April.
