News and Updates — 26th May 2022

2022 Scarecrow Festival

We had a fantastic turnout for this year’s Scarecrow Festival — our 14th!

It was so special to see so many people exploring our trails — families being guided by their youngsters to search out the scarecrows.

We raised a magnificent £5,840 for our chosen charities!

Thank you to everyone who came along, bought trail maps and enjoyed the day!

The money has been divided equally between the charities, whose details you can find below.

And the Winning Scarecrows were…

Green Trail: Wallace and Gromit (York Road)

Blue Trail: Pokémon

Red Trail: Elliot and E.T.

Orange Trail: Clowns

Black Trail: The Snail and the Whale

See these and others in our gallery of photos.

Our photo gallery of all of this year’s entries is now available, along with the answers for each scarecrow?


(We’ve added it to our Facebook page too!)
