Hook in Bllom have launched Scarecrow Competition which should keep families busy over the summer. The winning scarecrow will receive £25 in Amazon vouchers with 2 runners up each winning £12.50 in vouchers.
Creativity and originality is the key. They are not being prescriptive except that they do not want you to buy any materials, including shop bought masks. Recycling only please. Scarecrows with that little bit extra, it may be the materials used, the way the scarecrow has been made, how the scarecrow is displayed, or simply a fantastic idea that will probably catch votes.
Judging will be at Hook Flower & Produce Show on Sunday 12th September from 2 to 3.45pm. All scarecrows must be delivered between Noon and 1pm. The scarecrows will be displayed, sitting on their own chairs, and then everyone can vote.
Full rules are on the Hook In Bloom website, www.hookinbloom.org or you can email for more information or help.
