Scarecrows stirring up crowds at Thorns

Get out and cast your votes in the very first Thorns school scarecrow competition.

Children and staff have created 24 models of their favourite characters and they are already causing a stir with impressed visitors. Maps to hunt for all scarecrows and vote are on sale for 50p at Simply Fresh, Windy Arbour News and the school. The winner will be announced at the Summer Fair on June 21 where all exhibits will be out.

The trail runs everyday to June 16 and pictured are just some of the entries on display.

Event organiser, Sara Hattersley, said, “This is a new event for the PTA at Thorns and we really wanted to try something that the whole community would enjoy.

“There’s a real buzz about it as our scarecrows are all different and really imaginative and I would like to thank all the scarecrow builders and event planners for their hard work in making this such a terrific event.”
