Once again the residents of Slingsby have come up with a range of characters for the annual Slingsby Scarecrow Trail.
Commencing at 12 noon on Saturday, 3rd May Scarecrows will be on display around the village raising funds for the Friends of Slingsby School. Chairperson Rebecca Palmer-Bunting says “The designs are becoming more creative year after year. Families put such a lot of hard work into their scarecrows and having had a sneaky peak at a couple of them it is safe to say this year’s will not disappoint”
In recent years over 25 scarecrows have been entered into the annual competition. Trails are available for £1 from Robin Hood Caravan Park, Tony’s Village Shop and Slingsby School Reading Rooms from 12noon on Saturday 3th May until 4pm on Monday, 5th May. Refreshments will be available 12noon – 4pm in the Reading Rooms on Saturday and Sunday.
This year, there will also be a prize draw for all those that vote for the winner of the scarecrow competition so you could win a £10 voucher just for voting for your favourite scarecrow.
The Friends of Slingsby School raise money for fun projects for the kids. This year money has been donated to cover swimming lessons, days out and equipment for the classroom
Last year’s competition was won by Andrew Watson’s CheeseString Man.
