Scarecrow Trail for families in the community…
This FODS event is getting bigger every year, so we are giving you plenty of planning time!
This Scarecrow Trail will run from Saturday 23rd May to Monday 25th May.
The plan is for willing people to make a scarecrow to stand somewhere in the village - this
could be outside your house or even looking out of a window. If you don’t live in Dilton we
can organise a home for your scarecrow somewhere in the village.
Scarecrow Trail sheets will be sold for £3 per family and the challenge will be to find each
Scarecrow.
However, in order to organise this exciting event we need your help please, so if you would
like a chance of winning the prize for the favourite Scarecrow, it’s time to get planning.
This year the theme is ‘Famous People’
Please complete the slip below if you will be making a Scarecrow
and return to the school office by Friday 1st May
