Launton Scarecrow Trail “Celebrating Heroes”
Saturday 10th – Sunday 18th October 2020

Poster

At St Mary’s we have been wondering what we could do to mark the autumn season as a harvest lunch is not possible this year.

So we are organising a Scarecrow Trail from Saturday 10th October until Sunday 18th 2020. Planning has been done around government guidelines and we hope the scarecrows will put smiles on people’s faces as they walk around the village.

Theme

Our theme is “Heroes” in recognition of all the key workers who continue to support us but it could also be a hero from a book, a film or just a hero to you!

How to take part

If you have entered a scarecrow, it needs to be ready by 10 October and displayed until 18 October.

If you want to take part in the trail, please make a donation on our JustGiving page, the suggested amount is £5 per vote. If you would like to vote more than once, please consider making a larger donation.

A trail map, showing the location of all the scarecrows is available here and in the October Launton Lines.

Please respect people’s properties and do not enter gardens or touch the scarecrows. Please follow the latest government guidance – maintain social distancing and respect rules on households meeting or mingling.

How to vote

To vote for your favourite scarecrow click here. We’ve had fantastic support for this event; please bear in mind you can only vote for one of the official scarecrows as indicated on the trail map which will have a number displayed. Thanks to everyone who displayed a scarecrow.

The scarecrows with the most votes will be awarded a prize. We’re delighted with the support we’ve kindly had from local businesses, who have donated prizes. These are: Sun Wah, Blue Texel, S&H Coffee Shop, Stone Lily.

Voting will open on Saturday 10th October and close at midnight on Sunday 18th October 2020.

Preparing Your Scarecrow

Please let your imagination and creativity take over and have a go at making a Scarecrow using any safe materials you have at home. You don’t have to have straw in it but it’s ok if you do have some at home. Your scarecrow can be of any size and shape and just needs to be seen outside of your own property on October 10th until October 18th. Photos of the scarecrows and a list of the prize-winners will be available here after the event!

 

We look forward to seeing all the artistic and creative talent in Launton on display!
