Scarecrow Competition – ‘A Life On The Ocean Wave’

Make your scarecrow on the Carnival theme and pop him (or her) in front of your house for all to admire. To enter is easy:

Email James Mardon on to get your scarecrow number.  Please include your name and address and your age if under 16.

Make your scarecrow and put him on display by 24th June. Make sure his number can be clearly seen!

From 25th June, all villagers can take part in judging the scarecrows – even if you haven’t made one.  Collect a voting slip from Pitton Stores and enjoy a walk around the village, visiting all the scarecrows and awarding them points out of ten.  Return your voting slip to Rachel at the shop by 6th July.

Winners of both classes (Adult and Junior) will be announced at the Carnival Fete on Saturday 8th July and prizes awarded!
