Scarecrow Competition

Scarecrow Competition July 2017

Well done to everyone who entered the scarecrow-making competition! There were some amazing creations to fit in with the hobby and interest theme. The scarecrows have suffered a little in the recent rain and wind, but most have survived and are still worth a look if you’ve not managed to do so yet. The judges had a difficult task and as usual the results were very close and as follows:

Child entry:
1st Prize – Tansley Brownies for HRH Queen Elizabeth displayed at Tansley Community Hall
2nd Prize – 2nd prize Tansley Primary School for Geoff the lollipop man

Family entry:
1st Prize – 1 Oak Tree Gardens for The Queen’s Knickers
2nd Prize – 34 Riber View Close for Skating Scarlet
3rd Prize – The Cottage, Thatcher’s Lane for Poke-hay-mon

Adult entry:
1st Prize – Springwater Cottage, Oaksedge Lane for The Beast of Bentley Brook
2nd Prize – The Cottage, Green Lane for Nora Knit
3rd Prize – Spout House Farm for The Crazy Golfer
