MOSLEY COMMON VILLAGE SCARECROW FESTIVAL LOOKING FOR ENTRIES
 

Star date: 15th July 2017

SCARECROW BUILDERS WANTED FOR MOSLEY COMMON COMP

The second Mosley Common Scarecrow Festival is happening on 29th July and organisers are looking for people to enter the competition for the best fun and fab scarecrow. You don't have to live in the village to enter but hurry, the closing date is 19th July.

Full details here...


Last year's inaugural Mosley Common Village Scarecrow Festival drew some great entries, which ranged from dog scarecrows to clown and princess scarecrows. This year's Festival is on Saturday 29th July and organisers are looking for anyone who wants to enter a scarecrow.

Unlike last year, you don't have to live in Mosley Common Village to take part; anyone in Salford and beyond can have a go to get creative with straw. You just need to get an official entry form and pay the £2 entry fee by Wednesday 19th July.* On the day itself, visitors walk around with a scorecard and judge the best scarecrows.

 "Last year was the very first Mosley Common Village Scarecrow Festival and we were so pleased with all the entries" says Maxine Abberley, chair of Mosley Common in Bloom "There was a huge variety and some fabulous and fun scarecrows.  It was clear we have plenty of talent and enthusiasm in Mosley Common. 

"The whole village was buzzing on judging day and we were very pleased to welcome visitors from far afield - it made for a busy and fun packed day, and people were following the trail enjoying viewing and scoring scarecrows all day long" she adds.

"We came up with the idea that some of the people who had come along to judge, who may not necessarily live in the village, may also wish to take part by entering a scarecrow, which is why this year we have a number of positions for entrants from outside the area to display a scarecrow, and are encouraging people to complete an entry form.

"Scarecrows don't take long to make, and only need some old clothes and stuffing and a bit of imagination" she says "and most of all its fun when you're in with a chance to win..."
