Hi, this is Archie speaking:
It’s my job to show that anyone can make a scarecrow, and that people of all ages working together can create all sorts of characters, and have lots of fun in the process. So make sure you check out all the tips and information below on how to build a scarecrow.
Last year we had around 460 scarecrows in Bothwell that made everybody get together, share ideas, and laugh a lot; as well as raise lots of money for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. Hopefully there will be even more this year! So, if haven’t already done so; put your thinking caps on, and join in the fun by making a fabulous scarecrow or join the team at one of our scarecrow making events. Build your own Scarecrow Workshop and Scarecrow Building Demonstration.
If you would like your scarecrow to feature in the slideshow (which will be shown at the Chapterhouse and Evangelical Church) then please have it on display no later than Wednesday 12th September.
Don’t forget that once again this year we have SUPER SCARECROW STREET – see if your street can be a WINNER.
You’ll see even more of me this year; and I have a BIG SURPRISE for you. So look out for me, and when you see me, don’t forget to give me a smile and a wave. I really like that!
See you soon,
Make your Scarecrow and display it at the front of your home or business premises where it can be clearly seen by passers-by.
Display your scarecrow from late July, but at the latest by Wednesday 12th September.
Don’t forget to visit the library and add a sticker to the map of Bothwell in the corridor to let everyone know that your scarecrow is on display!
Straw and wood are available at The Cricklewood. These are available to you for a small cost.
