Competition Time

Crafty Monkey loves getting involved in the local community and giving back to our wonderful customers and one of the ways we like to do this is by running competitions! See below for some of our past competitions that we've run and been involved in and stay tuned for more competitions soon!

Past Competitions

St neots crafty Monkey give away.png



In an effort give local small businesses and attractions some extra exposure in these difficult times we teamed up with some local favourites in our most recent Social Media giveaway! One lucky winner won all of these prizes. 

We've got some great attractions and businesses in our little town and it was lovely to be able to highlight them - shop local!

For the Queens Platinum Jubilee we worked with St Neots Town Council to bring together a Jubilee themed competition with great prizes! Winners got to have their work shown in the St Neots Museum and a Craft Experience with us! 

We had a great time attending Street Food Fest and Picnic in the Park running the competition - we had loads of brilliant entries.

They are a non-profit community group of local volunteers looking to swell up their core team with other residents who are as passionate as we are about creating a greener community for all so if this interests you please do reach out to them and join their Facebook Group
