Thank you to the residents who suggested this idea and all those who took part by creating scarecrows and following the trail, plus Pobblyboo for the creation and the design of the trail leaflet.

 

WE NEED YOU - the scarecrow trail will need community support to run in future years, with 3-4 volunteers managing the event.  Due to shrinking Council numbers if volunteers don't come forward it may not be able to happen.  If you can help with making the scarecrow trail continue, please contact the Town Council.  Thank you.
