Silchester Scarecrow Trail
Silchester will be hosting its first Halloween themed scarecrow trail during the October half-term Saturday 26th October to Friday 1st November.
We are encouraging residents, businesses and clubs in the village to create and display a Halloween themed scarecrow on their property – locations must be within a reasonable walking distance of the village centre and be visible without having to enter any private properties.
Each entry will be given a letter to clearly display which will create an anagram once all collected.
People will be asked to score each scarecrow with a prize for the best scarecrow which will be announced at the Children’s disco on the 1st Nov. Entrance fee is £5 – proceeds go to the Silchester Association which supports local groups and events in the village. Scarecrows must be on display from 09:00 26th Oct until 16:00 1st Nov (you are welcome to display them longer) Participants will purchase a map £2 showing all the locations – once they have visited all the locations they will submit their completed entry with anagram and a score – maps will be on sale at The Calleva, Pop Up Café, School grounds and other locations to be announced.
