What is it?
Balerno’s Scarecrow competition is a fantastic chance to get creative! In previous years, we have had everything from The Incredible Hulk to WW1 soldiers and Minions. All you have to do is pay your £5 entry and put your scarecrow somewhere it can be seen from the road by the 2nd June!
Entries: Entries cost £5 and include a bag of straw for your scarecrow. Come along to the Balerno Village Trust stall at Balerno Farmers’ Market on 11 May (9am-1pm) or Balerno Gala Day on 25 May. If you can’t make those email firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: the deadline for building your scarecrow is Sunday 2nd June – we will be photographing them on the afternoon of 2nd.
3rd-7th June Scarecrow trail & voting: the trail will be available online and in the village, voting opens so you can choose your favourites
8th June: Farmers’ Market – scarecrow competition prizegiving. Prizes include a specially commissioned trophy, Farmers’ Market vouchers, sweeties and certificates
