Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Scarecrow Weekend.

The Gala Association, who organised the first ever Broadbridge Heath Scarecrow Weekend has been delighted with the resounding success of the event.

Over 30 entrants took part including individual households and families as well as groups and organisations within the village. The theme was TV/Film and participants were asked to leave their scarecrow outside from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Trail maps were distributed and last weekend saw a steady stream of people, map in hand, walking, cycling, driving or using their mobility scooter to get around the village to see the variety of scarecrows.

It seems that the entrants had great fun making their scarecrows and certainly those following the trail around the village had smiles on their faces. Undoubtedly the sunshine helped!

The effort put into making the scarecrows was fantastic and the judges had a really tough job to choose the winners.

Winners in the individual category were Emilia and Layton Hazelgrove who not only built an impressive Venkman but also provided the Ghostbusters van, green slime and music to accompany it. A really great effort.

In the group category, the winners were 1st Broadbridge Heath Beavers with Bob the Minion and lots of little minions. The judges were particularly impressed that everyone was able to get involved by producing their own minion.

The Gala Association would like to congratulate not only the winners but everyone who entered and was involved over the weekend. It has been very encouraging to see such a sprit of fun and community in the village.

Well done Broadbridge Heath!
