This October half term from Saturday 26th of October to Sunday 3rd November, the Mortimer Scarecrow Trail returns to celebrate its 10 year anniversary! To mark the occasion, the theme is "Anything Goes" so get your walking shoes ready to go and see the great array of characters we have this year. As in previous years, it will be an excellent way of keeping the kids – both small and not so small alike –entertained during the half term week. Trail followers will be able to vote for their choice of scarecrow in each one of three winning categories and have the chance to win £50 in the trail competition.
Maps will be available from the 23rd of October for £1 from Budgens, McColls, The Baobab and Dads Shop. Budgens are once again kindly providing a voucher with each trail map purchased that can be exchanged for selected products in the shop. Polite reminders: Please remember to respect the toilets of the establishments who have kindly allowed their facilities to be used across the week or they will closed for the remainder of the trail. We would also like to remind scarecrow goers not to park in the Budgens car park as regular customers will need to use the parking, other parking is available throughout the village.
As in previous years, our thanks go to the scarecrow makers, supporters and Blue Array Ltd, Budgens, Dads Shop, Mortimer Library, McColls, The Baobab, pictureseverywhere.com and Spratley's, all of whom help to make the Scarecrow Trail an enjoyable, viable and affordable community event.
Competition winners will be announced at The Horse & Groom between 6 and 6:30 on the 3rd of November so please come along and be the first to know who this year's winners are!
If there are any issues throughout the trail please contact Keeleigh Field on 07907272821 but we hope you enjoy the scarecrow trail and look forward to seeing you there!
