They're back!

After a gap of a few years, the Scarecrow competition has restarted in 2019, loosely with a "Walt Disney" theme. Here is a map and photos of all the 22 scarecrows around the village. Voting slips can be obtained at the pub, with a suggested price of £1 but as the proceeds go to Home-Start (who provide support to needy families with young children), please be generous with your donation. Voting closed on Friday 2nd August.

The event was not held in 2020, but in 2021 the winner was Jackie Rawle's Policeman.



Every year, in early August, the village runs a Scarecrow Competition. Villagers build scarecrows in July, and visitors vote for the winner, with the result being announced at the village Vegetable Show.

Voting slips, with a map of the scarecrow entries, can be obtained from the Pub. In former years proceeds went to the Children's Society Waves project, which was an advice centre for children and young people. That project has now finished, and the chosen charity is now Home-Start. So please be generous with your donations when you get your voting slip.
