Scarecrow Trail 2023 Theme: And the winner is…!

The Frampton Cotterell Scarecrow Trail is a popular annual event, giving the parish the chance to flex their creative talents by putting together fantastic scarecrows! Past themes have included “Save Our Planet” and “Sport With A Ball”.

This year, we wanted to get the village involved even earlier in the process, and so we asked our wonderful parishioners to vote for the theme of the 2023 Scarecrow Trail! The choices for this year’s theme were Myths & Legends, Heroes & Villians, Kings & Queens, and Book Characters.

Lots of people voted – and it was a close call, with only 7 votes separating the top two results! We’d like to thank everyone who voted.

However, now the polls are closed and the votes are counted, and we are happy to announce that the winning theme for this year’s Scarecrow Trail is..

Book Characters!

We can’t wait to see what brilliant bookish creations the village comes up with!

We’ll be sharing more information over the next week on how you can take part in this year’s Scarecrow Trail, so watch this space!
