Scarecrow Saturday!

by | Mar 23, 2017 | Events, Growing Gang

Only 2 days to go….

Sun is forecast for Saturday so we’re all set for a fantastic morning on the Go Local Food fields.

The theme for the competition is ‘Book Characters’ and all scarecrows need to be on the field for 10am.  So with only 2 days to go, get those finishing touches on now! Judging will take place between 10 am and 12 noon with fantastic prizes (vouchers from Forum Books and a few extra treats).

There are plenty of other activities to keep everyone occupied while the judging is taking place – Mini Scarecrow making with local artist Liz Beech, arts and crafts activities and Mothers Day planting ‘Creating a Mother’s Day Flowering Pot.  The kettle will be on, hope you can pop in and join us for a while.

As if that wasn’t enough, we are launching our ‘Growing Gang’ on Saturday – an opportunity for children to get involved in regular activities, have their own plot on the field and learn a bit more about the wildlife and environment around them.  We are looking for film making enthusiasts to help make a video diary about the Growing Gang as we begin to transform the children and young people’s space on the field.
