It was an absolute pleasure to present the trophies, prizes and certificates to all of the scarecrow winners in Cherestanc Square at the festival on Sunday 7th July. There were a total of 24 winners including the People’s vote which must have been very hard for the judges as there were over 160 scarecrows around the town to choose from! I loved seeing all the happy smiley faces and superb scarecrows in Garstang over the weekend. It was evident so much time, effort and artistic flair had gone into producing such spectacular scarecrows. Congratulations to all the winners. For a full list of the winners and photographs, please visit the scarecrow facebook page or website www.garstangscarecrowfestival.com Here’s a couple of pictures of one of the winning scarecrows, Matilda by the Garstang Crochet Group known as Garstang Hookers. Well done!
