The weathervane in the drawing is just to inspire you, we have yet to choose what the image should be. We want to get inspiration from the public, so anyone can enter. Don’t worry if your artistic skills need help, the winning idea will be turned into weathervane reality with support from our artists and metalworkers.
Closing date is 30th December 2019, send your design by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on paper to our registered address at Redlands, Main Road, Chelmondiston, IP9 1DX. You can send a simple drawing or a more complex design, whatever conveys your idea to us. Anyone can enter.
In January 2020, the judging panel will create a shortlist, ensuring that the designs would be technically possible. Weathervanes have to be able to balance and turn in the wind, so technical support from a weathervane metal worker will be called upon.
Once the shortlist has been chosen and checked for practicality, our members will be asked to vote and the winning entry will be made for the turret. The date for this vote has not yet been set but is likely to be in 2020
