Facebook Group Remembrance Header Competition


Taff Rocks is holding a competition and the winner will have their image used as the Facebook Group Header in November.

This competition in now closed!

You can show one poppy/remembrance rock or a number of poppy/remembrance rocks that you have painted.
If you are part of a community group, that has many members, why not submit an entry in the name of the group?
You can add items to your final layout e.g. candles, poppy badges, anything that you think is suitable, that will enhance your final piece.
