Competition: Name the Peregrine

In honour of Restless Brilliance: The Story of J.A. Baker and The Peregrine at Chelmsford Museum, two willow sculptures of peregrines are being created by Essex-based willow artist Deb Hart and placed in Oaklands Park. We need you to give them names!

Two winners (chosen at random) will have their suggested name and credit etched into their peregrine’s sign and also win a ground bird bath, bird feeder, peregrine plush with name tag, Family Swim and Skate vouchers, and a runners-up goodie bag. Yes – there will also be up to 48 runners-up!
