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 if we have any current competitions/giveaways running below for scroll down to see some of our past competitions we've run and been involved in!
Current Competitions & Giveaways
If you've been to events happening in St Neots over the past month or so, chances are you've spotted us hanging out and doing lots of colouring - we've been helping St Neot's Town Council run their fabulous Jubilee Art Competition!
The competition was free to enter and open for ages 3 - 16, entrants created a portrait of the Queen to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee. There were no limits on what they could make their portrait with - be it colouring, painting, sculpting, the possibilities were endless! We attended St Neots Pic Nic in the Park, Street Food Fest and the Town Market collecting designs and entrees - we had loads of fun seeing everyone creating their masterpieces.
The four winners then came and painted their design on a plate with us and will have their work shown in the St Noets Museum.
Past Competitions & Giveaways
Our most recent online competition was to win a Free Baby Print tile! Tiles are one of the cutest ways to capture your little one's foot or hand prints. Winners also had the option to upgrade to a large tile and opt for more decoration such as having the print turned into a cute little monkey!
We really enjoy getting involved and interacting with our online community and run competitions on our Instagram and Facebook often - so make sure you're following us!
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.
We ran our 'Save the Planet' Plate Painting Competition in September 2021 with great success. See the competition winners below who got to paint up their plates and plant a tree with Grow wild!
