Silchester Scarecrow Trail - October Half Term

Silchester Scarecrow Trail 2022

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Silchester Scarecrow Trail

We had 13 excellent entries around the village and many families and friends visiting the Scarecrows during the half term week.

Thanks to the Pop up Café and Calleva Arms for selling and collecting in the maps.

Scores were very close. But we are pleased to announce the overall winner for best scarecrow is Deerhurst, School Lane

and the winning entry was the Fraser family who correctly got the anagram as “Queen of Hearts” – both win a voucher for the Pop up Café.

We will be hosting the event again in 2023.

A really big thank you to everyone who created a scarecrow this year

 This was one of the few events that we were able to put on in the village during lockdown and it was great for families to be able to follow the trail during their daily exercise outings

Thank you so much to everyone who entered a scarecrow - we couldn't do this without you.

We had a 'Jim Henson' theme this year and had some fantastic entries
