Scarecrow Competition 31st July – 9th August

With no Flower Show and Country Fair this year, we have decided to organise a Scarecrow Competition to give us all something fun to focus on over the summer!


Scarecrows need to be in place on Friday 31st July and photographs for judging will be taken over that weekend (if the weather forecast is dreadful we might postpone!)

Scarecrows should stay in place until Sunday 9th August so that they can be viewed

Entry forms must be filled in and returned to Jay (details on the form) by 29th July

A trail giving the public location of each scarecrow will be available via the Parish Website – scarecrows should be positioned so that they can be viewed without the need to access private property

Scarecrows must be well secured and positioned so as not to cause damage, injury or danger

Scarecrows must be built from scratch without the use of pre-moulded or commercially available masks

Full details of the regulations and guidelines will be attached to the entry form which can be downloaded below.

The competition will be judged by photograph,
Jay will come round to all entries to take pictures which will then be forwarded to our special guest judges!

Our guest judges are
Jennifer Oldroyd
Elfreda & John Cormode

Prizes will be awarded for creativity, originality and the use of recycled items in the scarecrow’s creation

The Competition is intended to be a fun activity for us as villagers to take part in, either by making scarecrows or walking around our villages to look at those made by our neighbours. We are not planning to raise funds or publicise it widely, and everyone will need to abide by relevant social distancing guidelines when making or viewing the scarecrows.

Let’s have some fun and create some new village characters for us all to enjoy!
