Parky Pigeons colouring-in competition

Children aged 3 to 7, who live or go to school in the London Borough of Wandsworth, are encouraged to enter a colouring in competition, as part of the council’s MyWandsworth campaign to keep the borough looking at its best. 

We are running this competition along with the educational platform, Earth Cubs and Enable, the contractor which manages Wandsworth’s parks and open spaces on behalf of the council. 

Watch Abigail, age 7, colours in the Parky Pigeons colouring-in sheet.

How to enter the competition

Local children can take park in the drawing competition by colouring in the Park Litter sheet and help all the Parky Pigeons find all the litter.

The more colour the better and the judging panel will also look for lots of neat colouring in, in between the lines – so pencil, crayon or felt tip is preferred, and pencil will no doubt give the neatest results.

To enter, send in a scanned copy of your child’s entry – a JPEG, scanned PDF or a snap using your smartphone by:

The competition will close on Friday 19 March 2021 at 5pm.

Enable will also support the winning school with an assembly when restrictions are eased, to talk about planting, greening or growing food.

Activities and resources

Parents and teachers can access a whole host of free resources, from the Earth Cubs website, including downloadable activities and an educational  App to inspire young people to learn all about our environment.
