Congratulations to our top ten winners! Thanks to all villagers who spent hours building their brilliant creations to entertain our visitors.


All of our scarecrow makers went to an lot of effort but there were a few as festival organisers, which we thought were extra special!

We thought that entry 42, the 1918 Suffragettes scene in Trowley Bottom would definitely have made a worthy winner, as did entry 14, the wonderful War Horse in Vicarage Gardens. We also loved Number 57 – “Crowzart” in Trowley Hill Road, with working piano and music to match! All worthy entrants in our eyes!
