Calling Okehampton residents of all ages!


We have a special request for you. There's an exciting event coming up on May 18th 2019 in the afternoon, and it could involve YOU. See this article about the upcoming Victory Grand Tour Cape to Cape fundraising car rally which will be tracking The Trafalgar Way in reverse and calling into Okehampton as they go. The cars will have driven all the way from Cape Trafalgar in Southern Spain, crossing by ferry from Bilbao to Portsmouth. Between 40 and 50 classic cars will be coming to Okehampton along the High Street from the west and calling into Simmons Park during the afternoon. We would love Okey townspeople to cheer the vehicles through the town centre and to come along and see the cars close up, pick up information and have their photos taken with (or inside!) the vehicles. There will be special Trafalgar Way flags on hand for you to to wave to cheer the cars along.

A souvenir of Okehampton


What's missing from our preparations is our special Okehampton checkpoint souvenir for the participants. We've thought of something the drivers would love: we are going to make up some 'Postcards from Okehampton' featuring your artwork! All we need is your original design (A4 or A5 - postcards will be printed at A5 size) which can be:
  • drawn or painted by hand (and scanned or photographed), or
  • a photograph, or
  • a digital design incorporating graphics, photos and/or hand-drawn images

Your design can include text as well as images, or just an image by itself. It can be portrait (upright) or landscape (lengthways) in orientation. Our only request is that it should showcase some aspect of Okehampton that works well as a postcard souvenir!

We can accept files which are .jpg, .png or .pdf and they should be no larger than 10MB. The closing date for entries is May 10th 2019.
