Helsby's Scarecrow Trail
Join in Helsby's Village -Wide Scarecrow Trail
Calling all Heroes and Superheroes. Helsby Scarecrow Trail is back. This year's theme is to celebrate all heroes and superheroes, whether local, national or even supernatural.
A Scarecrow Trail is a great community event for everyone to get involved with. You can get involved by making your own scarecrow, buying a map and following the trail, or simply enjoying the many wonderful characters along the way - don't forget to take a selfie.
The theme for this year's Scarecrow Trail is Heroes and Superheroes. So, whether your hero is Captain Sir Tom or Captain America, why not get involved in this lovely village-wide event and get making. If you need any help in deciding what to do, then go to our Inspiration page for some ideas.
There will be prizes for the best residential scarecrow, for the best commercial scarecrow, and for the best community group scarecrow. Please refer to the Rules page for further details and guidelines of how to make your scarecrow.
Maps will be available to purchase for £2.00 each during the event from local businesses including JTO and The Old Bank Tea Rooms, Thrifty’s, The One Stop on Chester Road, and Headlines on Latham Avenue. There will also be a quiz on the map so that everyone that takes part can be in with a chance of winning a great prize. So, don’t forget to drop it back off after you have done the trail at any of these locations and vote for your favourite scarecrows.
