Saturday May 25th

Over the past 5 years we have had the most stunning entries to our Scarecrow Competition and we are sure that with your help 2019 won’t disappoint – though we would of course like to disappoint those pesky birds from eating our seeds and young plants!!

Can you make a scarecrow:

  • from recycled materials
  • able to stand up to the strong winds on our fields
  • will scare the birds (shiny, noisy, moving etc)
  • a character from your favourite book

We are looking for entrants for the competition which will take place on Saturday 25th May on our fields at Ovington Nursery – from schools /classes, clubs, brownies, cubs, churches, families and individuals.  Bring your scarecrow to the field between 10am – 11am, judging will take place at 12 noon.

It is useful to get an idea of how many scarecrows might appear, so that we have enough posts for them, volunteers, and of course prizes!  If you are intending to take part it would be great if you could drop us a line. If you need any further information please let us know:
