Personally I would love to thank all the sponsors who helped start this event so we are able to offer prizes, a massive thank you to all of the scarecrow makers, the votes were so close and the quality of the scarecrows very high. It was lovely seeing families, children, parents, dogs and grandparents braving the trail in all weathers....Lots of the children dressed up as they walked around the Town and everyone said it was lots of fun...
