Scarecrows entered for the 2020 community scarecrow competition celebrating all key-workers, were of a very high standard, making it challenging for the judges and the community to choose the winners.
After careful consideration scrutinising all the scarecrows entered, Magid Magid (past Sheffield Lord Mayor), – Lord Seb Coe, (past Tapton Student) – and members of the Crosspool community, chose the following winners and runners-up;
Prize winner chosen by Lord Coe was “The Ringstead Nurse” Ringstead Crescent (created from logs),
Prize winner chosen by Magid Magid was “The Spaniard’s” SpongeBob” Cardoness Road (created from a straw bale),
Prize winners will receive credit provided by Dan Kirkland for The Crosspool Tavern or Crosspool Sportsman pub (for food ;-)), when they reopen.
Prize runners-up, chosen by the community were:-
First runner-up prize, “Boris” (Marsh Lane allotments) – voucher to spend at the Green Cross Chemist, Crosspool.
Second runner-up prize, “Granddad Bus Driver” (Cairns Road) – voucher for two fish & chip dinners from the Crosspool Fish Bar.
On behalf of the community of Crosspool, we would like to take this opportunity to give big ”Thank You” to both Michele Hatton & Dan Kirkland for organising this year’s scarecrow competition, and also to express our gratitude to Lord Coe and Magid Magid for making the time in their busy diaries to support the Crosspool community by selecting this years winners.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year’s competition. The organisers hope that the variety of entertaining individual creations encourages everyone to enter next year’s competition.
