Nostell Scarecrow Competition
Nostell Priory Holiday Park held their annual scarecrow competition earlier this month and this year’s competition has been the best yet with the owners spending lots of hours on their creations!
After a poor turn out in 2008 where some owners seemed to have lost their appetite for the competition there ended up being 17 entries – a record for the Scarecrow competition since the event began in 2005!
The scarecrows were displayed several days before judging and loads of people had a good look around and were really impressed with the standard of the entries.
The competition was really hard this year and the judges had a very hard job deciding on the winners! This year entries consisted of several singers, a hairdresser, a butcher, Disney characters and even Nostell Royalty. After a hard struggle thinking about the entries the winning displays were: 3rd Prize; Minnie & Mickey Mouse, 2nd Prize; The Nostell Butcher and 1st Prize; Nostell’s King and Queen.
Several of the scarecrows are now being displayed at the local Farm Shop, Farmer Copley’s.
Overall, it was a fantastic turn out and a brilliant day!
