all the best small businesses were created in October 


On the 4th October 2020, we are celebrating our first year in business. In honour of this milestone, the gallery will be launching a Community Creative Competition to raise funds for Freshwell Health Centre, CREAMER Fund, Finchingfield.


To celebrate Wonky Wheel’s first birthday, it is calling budding artists of all ages to help it to create a community colouring book. The colouring book will showcase designs submitted by members of the community and will be available to buy from the gallery and its website from the 5th December. Profits from the colouring book will be donated to the Freshwell Health Centre, CREAMER Fund, Finchingfield.


Entry to the competition is free and entrants should create their design, drawn in black and white, on the special competition entry form.  Entry forms (A4 size) are available now from the Wonky Wheel gallery or on the website www.wonky-wheel.co.uk.


Wonky Wheel owner Mary Turley commented: "I’m so excited about the community creative competition and I’m looking forward to reviewing the entries from the community.


Designs should include anything that the owner of the colouring book will be able to colour in.  Designs could be, for example: animals, plants or flowers, landscapes, vehicles, geometric shapes or people. The best individual designs will be included in the book. The closing date for the competition is the 15th November 2020.


There are three different categories to enter and there will be one prize winner for the most creative design from each category. The winners will be announced on the 5th December live from the gallery. The categories  are -
