Scarecrow Competition

The theme for this years Scarecrow Competition is – Circus – The Greatest Show on Earth.
We’re looking forward to really creative scarecrows and to make this our biggest year yet. Whether you’re doing one as an individual or you decide to get the family together let’s decorate Winterbourne Down with scarecrows and most importantly have fun!

Entries can be from a family or individuals.  There is no entry fee. All an entrant needs to do is to email Jenny (jennifer.s.turner@blueyonder.co.uk ) with the family name and address where the scarecrow will be displayed on Sunday 5th May.  Please tell Jenny if you are entering by 26th April.

Scarecrows must be erected ready for judging by 1pm on Sunday 5th May.  There will be prizes for the top 3 and winners will be announced on Monday 6th at 4pm.  Judging will be by people taking part in the Treasure Hunt on the Sunday afternoon.

All entrants are invited to put their scarecrows on display on Monday around the railings of the Methodist lawn.


If you can help at the carnival – even for just an hour – please get in touch.   The carnival depends on volunteers so please help if you can.
