The Bunwell & Carleton Rode Scarecrow Hunt

The Bunwell & Carleton Rode Coronavirus Support Group present The Bunwell & Carleton Rode Scarecrow Hunt with any money raised going to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity

 

Fancy a fun activity for all the family during lockdown? Then join our ‘Build a Scarecrow’ competition or take part in the ‘Scarecrow Hunt’ as part of your daily activity. 

Build your scarecrow – What to do

You have until the 30th June to build your scarecrow. Try to be as creative and original as possible using any materials you like – but no moulded costume masks.

Display your Scarecrow in front of your property. They should be positioned so it is unnecessary for anyone to access your property in order to view them and make sure they will not blow away or cause any injury or offence.

Take a picture of your Scarecrow and send it with your address and a suggestion for its name to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

You can pay an entry fee via our fundraising page at https://www.justgiving.com/bunwell-volunteers- pay as little or as much as you like.

We will then send you your Scarecrows ‘passport’ to display with your Scarecrow – it is needed for the ‘Scarecrow Hunt’ as described below. Please make sure this is easily viewable.

Display your Scarecrow until the 19th July.

The Scarecrow Hunt

From the 1st July a map of all the Scarecrows will be posted on the www.bunwell.org.uk website. As part of your daily exercise you can walk around and view the Scarecrows and take a note of their names from the passport displayed with the Scarecrow. Record their names on your ‘Scarecrow Spotter Sheet’ which can be downloaded from the www.bunwell.org.uk website. You have until the 19th July to get the names of as many Scarecrows as possible.

Send your Scarecrow spotter sheet along with your vote for your favourite Scarecrow to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before 26th July 

You can pay an entry fee via our fundraising page at https://www.justgiving.com/bunwell-volunteers- pay as little or as much as you like.

Winning Scarecrows and Scarecrow hunters will be announced around the 2nd August, how we do this will depend on the lockdown situation at the time but we will keep you posted.
