Scarecrow Trail 2017

The Backwell Scarecrow Trail 2017

Saturday 2nd to Sunday 10th September 2017. 

This years' trail has again been a huge success. The theme was farmers and farming and a dozen scarecrows were on display around the village. And over fifty people bought the trail map!

Our thanks to all who made and displayed scarecrows, and to all who took part by following the trail.

This year each of the scarecrows had letters of the alphabet attached to it, and the competition was to note down all the letters and arrange them into a well-known phrase or saying. And the phrase was:

'Ploughmans lunch'

Congratulations to all who followed the trail and correctly identified the phrase!

On Sunday 10th September some of the scarecrows joined over one hundred people at a harvest service and hog roast lunch at Moorfield Farm, Backwell.

Pictures of some of the scarecrows can be seen here.
