The Barney Elf Army

Calling the Great Barney Elf Army…. we need your help!

Let’s create an Elf Army across Barnard Castle this winter.

This Christmas is definitely going to be a little different but it will still have moments of magic, especially with the good people of Teesdale involved. So we are calling on everyone – from shops restaurants, pubs and cafes to businesses and residents, to help create an elf scene in your window this December to add a little Christmas cheer to our wonderful town.

It doesn’t need to be anything too elaborate… just an elf sitting watching the world go by would do. However, if you’d like to get creative and make a scene to encourage smiles from those passing by, please do. What ever you choose to do, the appearance of elf will secure your place in the Barney Elf Army. And, if enough people join in, we can then all head out to discover what those cheeky elves have been up to!

Here at TCR Hub, our team are now working from home, with the building closed to the public and we, like so many others, have been thinking of ways to help spread joy through little acts everyone can take in our community.

We hope that the elves will help brighten your day, give the kids something to look out for and remind us all that a little bit of fun and community spirit goes a long way.

For ideas, please scroll through our wonderful elf gallery below – many thanks to the inspirational Brigitte Hodgson for these scenes!

Please share your elf scenes with us online with the hastag #BarneyElfArmy on our Facebook and Instagram. You can discover more ways of joining in the activities we are running for our community by visiting our What’s On page here.
