West Bergholt Scarecrow Trail

October 14 @ 9:00 AM - October 29 @ 5:00 PM


To kick off our 10-year Anniversary celebrations, we are launching West Bergholt’s first Scarecrow Trail. We are inviting EVERYONE to make a scarecrow for the trail around the village. So, we are looking for individuals, families, businesses, sports and social clubs to join in with the fun. The more the merrier!

The scarecrow needs to be displayed outside a house or business in West Bergholt.

Entry fees are £5.00 per scarecrow, and this will get you a place on the map. Each entry will be put into the public vote to decide which scarecrow wins ‘Best in Show’ and a prize.

As this is to mark The Tom Bowdidge Youth Cancer Foundation’s 10th anniversary and Tom loved films, we have chosen ’10 years of Movies’ as the theme.

Closing date for entries will be Saturday 7th October.

Scarecrows will be displayed from Saturday 14th October until Sunday 29th October.

Trail maps and voting forms are £2 and will be available from 9 Firmins Court or can be bought online after 13th October.

All proceeds will go to The Tom Bowdidge Youth Cancer Foundation, providing support to teenagers and young adults with cancer.

Get your entry form from Nikki at nikkibowdidge@tombowdidgefoundation.org or ring 07771646654.

Please share this event with your family & friends.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our fundraising event.
