2019 Scarecrow Competition:

In the weeks running up to the Gala we will again be holding our Scarecrow competition. A fun activity to do with the kids, the scarecrows attract a lot of attention with many people following the Scarecrow Trail round the village.

If you would like to make one you can PRESS HERE to get an information sheet and register your scarecrow in the way described on the sheet - the scarecrow must be up by May 31st.

Our 2019 Citizenship Awards:

Each year we present two Citizenship shields at the Gala:
One is for an adult who has ‘demonstrated outstanding commitment to, support of and/or delivery of a service to the Cuddington and Sandiway community’, and
the other is a junior award for a young person under 18 who has done ‘something really special’.

These accolades are awarded by you, the residents of our village. If you know someone who deserves an award just go ahead and nominate them.

Nomination forms:
    Press Here for Adult Citizenship Nomination Form
    Press Here for Junior Citizenship Nomination Form

The winners will be announced at the Gala. The person you nominate must be a resident of the village and you should give as much detail as you can about why you are nominating them. The forms should be handed in, in a sealed envelope, at Sandiway library by Monday May 20th.

2019 Royalty Selection:

The Selection has taken place for the Royal Pageant at the 2019 Cuddington & Sandiway Gala.

Our new Queen will be Scarlett Joice. Scarlett is 6 years old and attends Sandiway Primary School where her favourite subject is Art. When not at school she enjoys ballet, street dance, and roller disco. She also likes swimming. Scarlett will be raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society because her granddad has MS. She will be accompanied on the day by our Princess, Beatrice Macleod, aged 5, along with Empress, Alexa Rose Astles who is 6, Rosebud, Freya Macleod, 5 and Fairy Queen, Amara Grace Astles, 2.  With them will be Prince Douglas Proctor, age 3

They are looking forward to seeing you at the Gala on June 8th
