FARNHAM District Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and leaders were all invited to prepare a painting or clay sculpture to submit for a competition and exhibition at Daniel Hall, Farnham.

Art evenings were held by groups over a two-month period ahead of the Wonderful World exhibition, which was held on March 30-31 and which received around 300 entries of animals, birds, undersea, rainbows, mountains, and many volcanoes.

Farnham mayor David Attfield judged the competition alongside Farnham District Commissioner Philip German and picked out three worthy winners in each category – Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Jonathan Saunders, 4th Farnham (Tongham) Scout Group, came first in his category and announced he’d received an art scholarship and will be starting at Frensham Heights in September.

Best in show went to Scout Oliver Guttierez, 5th Farnham.

Scout second place went to Elise Grist, 8th Farnham, and third place to Madeleine Turner, 4th Farnham.

Cub first place was awarded to Kate Wildman, 2nd Farnham, second place to Elsa Lobet, 12th Farnham, and third place to Isabella Fraser, 3rd Farnham.

Taking the Beaver first place was James Hask, 5th Farnham, with Thomas Clarke, 2nd Farnham, taking second place and Aaron Thomas-Finning, 4th Farnham, taking third place.

Sculptures had a separate category and were entered by 5th Farnham, with first place going to Felix Foster, second place to Harry Murphy-McKie, and third place to Archie Tomkins.
