The village of Loughton is playing host to over 60 scarecrows in the 2015 Trail which starts from All Saints’ Church on Saturday 4 July. The scarecrows are hoping for a place on the famous red carpet, with each one representing a book, a film or a play.
Guides for the trail can be bought from the church, priced £2, on:
Wednesday 8 July 12.00 noon – 2.00pm
Saturday 11 July from 10.00am – 5.00pm,
Tea and cakes will be available from 2.00pm – 5.00pm on all weekend days.
The guide will include a quiz for the children, and a voting slip for the Visitors’ Choice award – a chance to vote for your favorite scarecrow. The entries from local people, schools and charities will be judged by Mark Neil, Milton Keynes’s Poet Laureate, Lance Fennell, a local artist based at nearly Westbury Arts Centre, and Jonny Hill from Milton Keynes Gallery.
The Trail ends with a Scarecrows’ Supper, together with a Gifts and Promises Auction on the evening of Saturday 11 July.
