Aldbourne's Scarecrow Trail returns again - for a third year

A 2016 scarecrow: Why on earth isn't that bird scared?  Perhaps it's not a crow...A 2016 scarecrow: Why on earth isn't that bird scared? Perhaps it's not a crow...Scarecrows will once again be appearing all over Aldbourne this year as the village prepares for its Scarecrow Trail - taking place over the weekend of May 20-21.  This will be a third annual outing for scarecrows - this time matching a new theme.

Building on the trail's successful track record, residents, community groups and businesses have come forward to create a fantastic array of scarecrows. This year's chosen theme is Fairy Tales & Musicals.

So visitors can expect to see favourite enchanted and theatrical characters amongst the eclectic mix of creations.

The event is organised by Aldbourne Churches Together (ACT) - a joint enterprise  of the village's St. Michael’s C of E Church and the Methodist Church.  ACT assists with many activities in the village.

Another 2016 entrant: remind you of anyone?Another 2016 entrant: remind you of anyone?One area of focus is working with young people and through ACT, the churches are able to work closely with toddler groups, the school and teenagers fostering closer community links and support.

Organiser, Zoe Aldred, is proud that the Trail has now become a firm favourite on the village calendar: "The community is once again excited about scarecrow building and we are certain that the level of creativity will not disappoint."

"We are very grateful for the support of a number of local businesses including Jungle Mania, The White Horse Bookshop, The Blue Boar and The Crown, Aldbourne. Thanks to them we are able to offer a fabulous range of prizes including a family ticket to Jungle Mania, two pub meals and book tokens.”

The route provides an excellent opportunity to explore the picturesque village and visitors can to take a break at the Methodist Church, Lottage Road where hot dogs and cakes will be available from 10am – 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Scarecrow Trail sheets, available at the Methodist Hall, cost £2.50 with an additional trail for children costing £1.

The children’s theme is Nursery Rhymes and Songs.
