Take up the Super Scarecrow Street Challenge

We are throwing down the Challenge to any STREET, PART OF A STREET or COMMUNITY GROUP that would like to enter and 2023 brings new judges of the competition – the people of the community will be asked to make their online nomination for the Super Scarecrow Street winners.

In 2022 saw new streets taking part and many new themes of scarecrows popping up. We found that those communities taking part in the challenge really enjoyed the shared community involvement and felt that the experience had greatly strengthened friendships among neighbours of all ages, making their area an even more special place to live.

To ENTER and REGISTER for the competition all you have to do is notify us at:

superscarecrowstreet@gmail.com, or phone/text 07748 802915  or use our FACEBOOK PAGE.

  • Stakes and slats for your first 3 scarecrows

You be the Judge…
