Stow Cotswold Festival

The Stow Civic Society’s involvement this year in the Stow Cotswold Festival has now started with the launch at Stow Primary School yesterday of our model “sheep decorating” competition.  Over 150 models of ceramic money-box sheep, kindly sponsored by Newlands of Stow, were delivered to the school and details of the competition explained to the pupils at their Assembly by Head Teacher, Mrs. Rebecca Scutt; this was received with great excitement and enthusiasm by pupils and teachers alike!  Pupils were encouraged to decorate their own individual model sheep using all types of materials and to give their sheep a suitable name.  The models will be completed prior to the Stow Cotswold Festival on Saturday 15th July and displayed at Newlands for judging the week before.  Prizes will be awarded and the models then re-located and displayed in St. Edward’s Hall on Festival day for all to see and admire.  


Make sure 'ewe' don’t miss them!
