Fun day for families exploring Chedworth scarecrow trail

First published in News

CHEDWORTH Scarecrow Trail was pronounced a great success by organisers, with nearly 40 homemade scarecrows dotted around the village for families to explore.

Taking two prizes on the day was Patsey the scarecrow, entered by Kate Avery at Tall Trees. Judges felt Patsey deserved the Most Ingenious award as well as Best Representation of the Countryside award.

The winner of the Best Constructed scarecrow was Thistle Scarecrow at Gilgal, entered by Thistle Garden Design.

One organiser Harry Catton said the event, held on Saturday, July 14, went very well.

"We had all four seasons throughout the day; rain, hail, thunder and lightning," said Harry. "We had 35 people exploring the trail and they managed to complete the course with a smile on their faces."

Although organisers did not expect to make a profit on the day, they were delighted and surprised to announce that they had collected £527.27 to boost the church fund.
