Farewell to the scarecrows…

Scarecrows are go!

Scarecrows are go!

Children and adults alike have had great fun making Scarecrows for the Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle Scarecrow trail. Even more have been able to get out to enjoy seeing them. It's been lovely to see so many people with their trail maps, ticking off the scarecrows and planning to see them all. There's a dinosaur, a unicorn, Harry Potter, one standing on his head and other sitting on a roof! Some people have worked with neighbours to make their scarecrows and it's really brought the community together. The trail runs until 6th September 2020 and there are scarecrows at…
