Second sculpture goes under hammer in Buckingham Otter auction


The next otter sculpture to go under the hammer in the Buckingham otter auction is otter # 2, Patchy.

Patchy was sponsored by long-established Buckingham company Howes The Florist and decorated by grade two children from Maids Moreton C of E School.

The students chose a patchwork pattern, inspired by Elmer the elephant, for their otter and the whole class participated, with each child drawing and painting a section. The kids wanted Patchy’s fur to look realistic, so they went with shades of brown. They really enjoyed the design process and were very proud of their finished product.

The Buckingham Otter auction follows the dismantling of the popular Buckingham Otter Trail after the end of the summer holidays.

The 3-foot-tall otter sculptures, each decorated by a different community group or school and sponsored by local businesses, are auctioned off to benefit the mayor’s charities and to help fund a similar carving trail event next year.

Patchy can be seen in person at the Tourist Office from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Saturday. The auctions for Patchy end on Friday, October 15 at noon.

Meanwhile, offers are still pending for the # 1 otter, Jimmy Fisher, decorated by members of YC2.
