Now into its 8th year, the Hampton in Arden 'Scarecrow Competition' is organised by the Hampton Festival Committee, in association with the Hampton Community Crafts group. Residents create scarecrows based on a chosen theme, with this years theme being 'Music'.
Following its introduction several years ago, we will again provide the opportunity for all members of the community to vote for their choice of winner, in each category (there will be four this year). Having listened to feedback, we have added a voting slip to the bottom of the flyers being sent out. As well as this, voting can be done by the traditional method of casting your vote on a piece of paper and submitting it via the local shops (a big thank you to the Corner Shop, Mike & Diane at the Village Stores, Emma in Sandwiches @ No. 6 and the Post Office) or, embracing modern technology, via the links below.
Winners will be announced on the afternoon of Saturday, 30th June at approx. 2pm..
