Over 20 households in the neighbourhood displayed a scarecrow in their front garden as part of a scarecrow competition at this year’s Crosspool Festival.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone who made one, they were all fantastic! We raised a fantastic £66 for the two Lydgate schools and we know how much fun the families who entered had making them and the spotters too.
If you did not make a scarecrow this year, don’t worry we will be running the competition next year. We hope you will join in then.
The judge has announced the winning scarecrows.
