The Mortimer Scarecrow Trail is now a firm fixture on the calendar and every year, the groups of families walking, cycling and scooting around the village during half term increases! The trail will be running across the half term holidays from 9am on Saturday 20th October – 4pm on Sunday 28th October. Each scarecrow has been created by local families, schools and businesses and will be on show daily from 9am to dusk.
This year’s theme – ‘Heroes & Villains’ – covers famous and infamous characters such as Action Man, Gru, Superworm and even Margaret Thatcher! Vote for your favourite scarecrow, be in with a chance of winning £50 and enjoy a ‘Just For Fun’ Quiz to test your knowledge of the pairs. Further info Click Here
This year’s organisers are Mortimer St Mary’s PTA who will be putting all profits to their swimming pool refurbishment fund. They have asked us to say a big thank you to the scarecrow makers without whom there would be no scarecrow trail! Are you ready to spot some scarecrows?
