There were some fabulous scarecrows in 2018 … can we do even better in 2019??
But remember … this is for Fun. No pressure, no competition… just enjoyment and a little bit of work!!
This year we are suggesting that you build your scarecrows on a smaller scale so that they can be in a front window… your porch … or anywhere safely in your garden.
Please do not put any scarecrows on public land, like the tow path.
We know how much hard work goes into making these and we want to keep them safe.
Many people have asked us to run the Scarecrow Trail again this year – SO PLEASE, JOIN IN. Show everyone what a fabulous Village we are. Shops, pubs, businesses of all kinds …. you are the Heart of this Village – show us what you can do.
♦We are delighted that some shops have already said they will be displaying scarecrows this Summer – brilliant!!♦
