Queen's Jubilee - West Hill Scarecrow Competition

West Hill Scarecrow Competition


To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the West Hill Pre-School Committee are hosting a Jubilee/Royalty themed scarecrow competition over the bank holiday weekend (Thursday 2nd June 2022 to Sunday 5th June 2022). Everyone is welcome to take part.  West Hill Parish Council are  sponsoring the competition and offering:

1st Prize: £50

2nd Prize: £25

3rd Prize: £10

Along with highly commended certificates.

The theme for the competition will be Royalty/Platinum/Jubilee, but any scarecrow is very welcome to enter! Please  ensure that scarecrows are positioned well within the boundaries of your property and to keep pathways and roads clear.

If you wish to take part in the competition, the Pre-School asks for a suggested minimum donation of £3 to the Pre-School. Please email whpreschoolevents@gmail.com with your name, address and a contact phone number by midnight 30th May 2022 and a member of the Pre-School will send you a link to make the donation online.  Alternatively, you can place your donation in an envelope with your name, address and a contact phone number, labelled ‘Scarecrow Competition’ and delivered to the Pre-School (at the Village Hall) by Friday 27th May 2022 (last day of term).

A map of all the scarecrow locations will be distributed for free on social media and a limited number of paper copies will be available at McColls shop on Thursday 2nd June 2022. Any donations are very welcome for those wishing to walk around the village and view the scarecrows. A collection bucket will be in McColls for the duration of the weekend. Judging will be held over the bank holiday weekend, so we ask all scarecrows to be assembled by Thursday 2nd June 2022.
