Keep calm and carry on creating!

There have been so many Bildeston events cancelled this summer, leaving us disappointed and sad. But do not despair!  Get ready for A SCARECROW COMPETITION to run throughout August in aid of The Suffolk Community Foundation, a charity that supports all Suffolk charities, many of which have suffered financially due to Covid-19.

An entry fee of £2.50 per scarecrow will go directly to the charity and we will also be having a GRAND DRAW with some amazing  prizes with ALL profits going to the SCF. The scarecrows will be judged during the third week of August by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy who will be coming to the village to see your creations in person!

Prizes will be awarded for the most imaginative creations.

Chamberlin Hall Management Committee have generously donated £100 in prize money. 1st prize £50; 2nd prize £30; 3rd Prize £20. If you are able to donate anything for the GRAND DRAW that would be amazing and extremely gratefully received.

You will have all of July to create your very own scarecrows….any size, shape, design, you choose. From August 1st you can display your scarecrows in your front garden or front window for the whole village to see. The scarecrows will be judged during the third week of August and prizes will be awarded for the most imaginative creations. Let me know if you are entering and I will make a map so people will know where the scarecrows will be popping up.

How lovely it would be to see dozens of colourful scarecrows around the village to make us smile.

If you’re not sure how to go about making one give me a call and I will
give you some suggestions! Have fun!
