Land of the Fanns Model Building Competition

0Are you a budding builder?

Show off your engineering and creative skills by building a local place in the Land of the Fanns that is special to you with items from inside your home.

Enter our competition by submitting a photo of your model building for your chance to win one of three prizes.

The models can be built from anything you can find in your home, building blocks, paper, crafts, recycling etc. The model can be of your favourite building, landscape or hidden gem in your local area.

Examples from a member of the Land of the Fanns team:

Have you discovered a hidden gem in your local area you may not have visited before lockdown.
Maybe you’ve taken a regular walk to a local heritage building near your home.
Where ever your lockdown travels have been taking you, we’d love to see it.
And lets share our appreciation of what’s around us.

The models will be judged in two categories:

  • Adults and Young People (12+)
  • Children (11 and below)

Send your photo of your model, along with a title, your name, address, telephone number and brief description of what/where your model is of to landofthefanns@thameschase.org.uk by Monday 15th March 2021.

The Land of the Fanns is an intricate landscape, full of surprises and ‘hidden gems’ which straddles the London – Essex boundary and encompasses significant parts of Havering, Thurrock, Barking & Dagenham and Brentwood. We are looking for models which capture the essence of the area – the landscape, heritage and the community.
