Scarecrow Competition

1st October 2019 @ 08:00 - 20th October 2019 @ 12:00


Join our big scarecrow competition once again. Here is your opportunity to win a silver cup. We’re looking forward to all the marvellous entries that people are preparing. Vote on our Facebook page and come to see who has won when announced at the Festival Service 11am on 13 October at St James’ Church. We will also post the results on twitter, Facebook and in our blog on our website.

We hope to see scarecrows – you choose the style – outside your shop, business, school or why not your home. You can be of any age but we would expect children to have a parent’s or guardian’s approval.

To enter: get your entry form online here or collect one from Castlegate Stationery or from the Town Hall. Our Box Office will be at the Town Hall this year so you can pick up a copy there. Submit your entry to the same places, Castlegate or the Town Hall. Get your entry in early – DEADLINE 8 OCTOBER – and we will take the photo. Alternatively, you take the photo and send it to You may also send a scanned copy of your entry to the same address. We will post each photo to our Facebook page,

The winning scarecrow will be the one with the most ‘likes’ on our Facebook page. So tell your friends, relatives and colleagues and get them to ‘like’ your scarecrow. Our judging panel will select the winning scarecrow.

We would be delighted if you would like to make a small donation. Alternatively consider becoming a member. Become A Member
