Bonkers in Boscombe

Due to our move back to Poole our Bonkers in Boscombe events will be having a re-vamp! We are looking to hold some spectacular community events throughout the year at our Alder Hills store and in the local area – watch this space!

Dorset Scrapstore’s Bonkers in Boscombe events are always AWESOME fun – FACT!!

Open to teams of all ages, Bonkers events are the perfect opportunity for clubs, youth groups or a gang of mates to get together for a making challenge.

Each event has a theme. We provide all the materials. Your mission is to create a spectacular masterpiece of creative genius in under 2 hours!

Winning teams get a year’s free membership to Dorset Scrapstore, a free bag of materials…but most importantly, the dubious accolade of having its name inscribed on ‘Fernando’ – our glorious golden trophy!

How it works:

  • We provide materials, tools and a theme
  • You gather a team of 6 – 10 people
  • You have 2 hours to create something truly worthy of the Bonkers name, and to have as much fun as humanly possible!
  • An independent adjudicator will judge the winning team (we are open to all forms of bribery!)
  • Points will be awarded (in no particular order) for imagination, construction methods, range of materials used, effort and teamwork
