Design a Children’s Birthday Card Competition

The Dore Village Society is pleased to announce that it will be holding a competition for a design for a Dore Village Society Wyverns birthday card. Membership of the Wyverns is free to children and young people up to the age of 25 and in full time education. Wyverns receive a birthday card from the Dore Village Society on their birthdays. Application forms for membership are available from Hartleys Fruit Cabin and Paper Moon, or you can download a printable copy here.

The winning designs will be professionally printed with the names of the designers on the back of the cards and sent out to members of the Dore Village Society Wyverns each year on their birthdays. They will also be sold at village events such as the Gala and the Dore Show to support the charitable activities of the Dore Village Society.

The winners of the competition in each age group will each be awarded prizes of £15 gift vouchers at the Dore Show on September 8th.

The pictures need to represent some aspect of Dore Village or important village events such as the gala, the well-dressings or the lantern parade.

Each entrant may submit up to two entries with their names, ages, addresses and telephone numbers clearly printed on the back.

There will be three age groups of entrants: 4-8, 9-13 and 14-18 years old. Entries (on A4 sheets of paper only please) can be delivered to:

  • The DVS office (in the Old School) on Fridays between 10am and noon or on the first Saturday of the month between 10am and noon;
  • The Dore Village Society stall at Dore Gala on 14th July;
  • The Membership Secretary at Topdore, 170 Dore Road, S17 3HA.

The closing date for the competition is Friday 27th July. The entries will be judged by three members of the Dore Village Society committee and the winners will be announced at the Dore Show on September 8th. There will also be a presentation to the winner(s) of the competition at the Dore Show.

The Dore Village Society wants to encourage younger members of the village to make a contribution to village life through this initiative.
