The great scarecrow competition returns again as part of this year's Herald of Spring, 7 March 2020. Local primary schools and youth groups are invited to enter our competition and create a scarecrow on this year’s theme – this year Bourne Hall is 50 years old and to celebrate its birthday we are going all 1960s. So maybe a hippie scarecrow with flowers in its hair, Beatles or Rolling Stones, or a scarecrow in a mini skirt! Or perhaps 1960s children’s programmes… how about Camberwick Green, Captain Pugwash, Clangers, Fireball XL5, Magic Roundabout, Sooty, or Stingray. Or the Kinks well-respected man!
