The rules... 

  • Entries are invited from residents of all ages who live in Catbrook, Broadstone, Whitelye and Parkhouse. You can make more than one scarecrow - but it's only one entry per household.

  • Please make scarecrows family-appropriate and in good taste!

  • Your scarecrow can be made from any materials with the exception that pre-moulded or commercially available masks are NOT permitted - that would be too easy!

  • Scarecrows should be displayed on your property so that they can be viewed from the road or a public right of way. 

  • Please secure your handiwork so that it doesn't blow away and consider whether it would survive a good rainstorm, which is almost inevitable in Wales!

  • Your scarecrow should be secured and positioned so that will not cause a danger, injury or annoyance to others.

We thought it would be a great idea to have the first ever Catbrook Scarecrow Competition during the summer holidays, with the prizes being awarded at the Catbrook Summer Scarecrow Party! The winner will be decided by a public vote after everyone has had a chance to follow the Scarecrow Trail and fill in the voting form.

To take part you need to make a scarecrow and show it off in your garden.  Then take the Scarecrow Trail to cast your votes for your favourite creations.  You do not have to make a scarecrow to be able to vote but we'd love to see as many entries as possible all around the village.  Don't forget there are prizes to be won too!


The timescale...

(note: start of trail is now 15th August because of impending storms, it would be very sad if any scarecrows didn't survive...)

  • Enter your scarecrow by Monday 7th August 2023 HERE.  No late entries will be accepted! 

  • Scarecrows must be finished and on display by 10am on Tuesday 15th August 2023. The name of your scarecrow should be clearly visible to voters - so that they know who to vote for!

  • The Scarecrow Trail will be open from Tuesday 15th August until 5pm on Thursday 24 August 2023. A Scarecrow Trail map and voting form can be downloaded HERE from 14th August. Post your completed form into the letterbox on the hall door.

  • We'll count the votes and announce the winners on Friday 25th August 2023 at the Catbrook Summer Scarecrow Party at the hall.

Hints and tips...

  • How are you going to make your scarecrow unique, original, new or funny?

  • Will your modelling skills impress voters? Is it going to be well made? Will it catch the voter's eye?

  • If you've got any questions please email Stephanie Spragg or ring her on 07795 555682.

  • And finally...The most important rule is to get as creative as you can and HAVE FUN!
