2019 Go Local Food Scarecrow Competition

elmer the elephant scarecrowThe sun was shining early Saturday morning as entrants set up their efforts to be judged at the ‘2019 Go Local Food Scarecrow Competition.’

Build quality standards were once again amazingly high. Children from the After School Badger Club and The Growing Gang had been inspired by such book characters as Winnie the Witch and Elmer the Elephant. Ovingham Craft Group had innovatively used solar powered lighting in their flower pot creation. Prudhoe 1st Cub Scouts had been hard at work making some very scary creations from a spider to a pirate and the Choristers at St Mary’s Ovingham chose to make a chorister complete with a highly reflective hymnal to scare away the birds.
