New edition of the Charity Scarecrow Trail at Bradley Stoke in August
An invitation from the mayor Michel Colline to participate in a great summer vacation activity for the whole family.
It’s still here! Following the success of last year’s ‘Wizards and Witches’ scarecrow trail held in October 2020, which raised almost £ 2,000 for charity, he will return for two weeks during the summer school holidays, from Saturday August 14 to Saturday August 28, 2021.
Bradley Stoke will host dozens of scarecrows across town; everything will have been designed to fit this year’s theme; characters from children’s books, movies or nursery rhymes.
Trail maps will be available for purchase for £ 2 from August 7 at the Jubilee Center City Council offices, the Baileys Court Activity Center, the Hollow Tree public house and the Willow Brook Center management suite. Please bring cash (bank transfer is also available).
Trail enthusiasts can vote for their favorite scarecrow at the bottom of their trail maps. These will be totaled and the most popular will receive a prize of £ 100; there will also be smaller prices of £ 50 and £ 25.
Handing over your completed trail map also entitles you to enter a raffle that could win you £ 50!
Registrations must be returned before Monday August 30; the winners will be announced on Monday September 6th.
We would love to if you wanted to make a scarecrow for the trail. We invite all local schools, local businesses and residents of Bradley Stoke to join us. If you want to be a scarecrow maker, please send an email [email protected] for registration forms and more information or visit www.bradleystoke.gov.uk/scarecrow21
The character chosen can be your own idea or can come from a list prepared by the city council. If this is your own idea, it will need to be approved so that it fits the theme and does not duplicate another entry.
Each scarecrow must be identified and display its number in the course.
There is a suggested minimum entrance fee donation of £ 10 for each scarecrow, the money going to the mayor’s charities – Dogs for Good, which provides assistance dogs to people with major medical conditions, and St Peter’s Hospice, which provides end-of-life care. for the people of Bristol.
Participate and have fun discovering a wide variety of characters scattered around the city.
