Scarecrow Festival 2018

This year's Scarecrow Festival will be held on Sunday 23rd June. Preparations are well underway and the bunting has gone up in the village. Collect your route maps (£2) from Kathy at the Meeting Hall from 10am!

Best Scarecrow Prizes: 1st £50, 2nd £40, 3rd £30, 4th £20, and 5th £10.

Phrase Prizes: 1st £25, £20 and 3rd £15

Good luck to those entering the competitions and we hope everyone has an enjoyable day!

Thank you to everyone who took part in this wonderful event, whether making the scarecrows, performing or volunteering. Without everyone doing their bit, however small, this event would not be the huge success it is.


We had a wonderful day and hope you all did too.


         The much anticipated winners of the best scarecrows voted for by the public:


              1st Prize:     Number 37 - Gruffelo                4th Prize:     Number 22 - Marcelo Bielsa

              2nd Prize:   Number  66 - Stick Family        5th Prize:     Number 62 - Mario and Luigi

              3rd Prize:    Number 54 - Evil Queen


We had a problem this year with the competition and voting form. Due to a misprint using last years clue unfortunately only two people managed to get the correct answer to the sentence, which was, 'Gildersome tenth Scarecrow Event.' Everyone who entered went into a hat and one was picked for 3rd place.


A few people failed to put scarecrows out this year that had contained a letter obviously that wouldn't have helped, so sorry for any confusion, it was beyond our control.


The winners of the sentence are Caroline Tobin, Ashley Wilson & Eve Connell.
