Are you a photographer, artist or craftsperson? If so, here is a competition that might be of interest. To celebrate our fungi, mushrooms and toadstools the Wildlife Group have organised some competitions with funding and support from Grow Wild. These are the categories:

Category 1. Take a photograph of any fungi you come across

Category 2. Do a drawing or painting of any fungi

Category 3. Use craft skills to make a model of fungi. This could be stitched (see photo), carved or constructed.

You can either attach the photo or a scanned painting and email your entry to bruce7@ btinternet.com or you can leave your original piece of artwork (no bigger than A3) or model with a member of staff at the Wenvoe Village Library on opening days. Please ensure your name, age and contact details are associated with your entry. Images of your entries may be used by the Wildlife Group for publicity purposes.

You can submit entries anytime between 1st September and the end of October. We then hope to create a display at the Village Library. Entries are open to everyone and there are no age restrictions. First prize in each category will receive tokens to the value of £30 but there will also be some £10 prizes for runners up.
