Ticket sales were brisk, around 260 sold, 140 maps were handed out and there were 70 maps returned after the trail, a fantastic effort, and thanks to the volunteers at the Scarecrow Cafe many of them left full of baked potatoes, quiche, cake and tea.
We'll announce the winning scarecrow in the newsletter when the votes are all counted up.
There were some lovely comments on various social media sites:
"Great scarecrow hunt in Great Coxwell on Sunday. Thank you to the organisers. My children had a lovely time and spent the majority of the day looking for scarecrows. The jacket potato pit stop was also well received! Thanks!."
"My granddaughter loved it especially the live chickens & donkeys "
"There are some great ones. Some people have really made a good effort"
"All the scarecrows were brilliant! So pleased everyone had such a lovely day"
"Great job Hope it becomes an annual event !!"
Along with the well supported raffle, I think we can say it was a success.
Once again thanks to everyone who helped out or did the trail and to the whole village for hosting the event.
Until next time??
