Scarecrow Trail – The Winners

The winners of the 2020 scarecrow trail have been announced.

The judges would like to thank everyone for taking part and/or voting. The standard has been magnificent and deciding winners has been extremely difficult in some categories. Everyone should be very proud of what they have achieved.

As this was the first scarecrow trail for some years we are aware that things could be improved in places. To help us identify what matters most to everyone we have created a survey that we would encourage everyone to complete so we can make any future events even better. The survey is here. The survey will close at the end of July.
