Scarecrow Winners

Bunwell and Carleton Rode's Favourite Scarecrow as voted for by you is perhaps better described as the 'Favourite Scarecrows' as not one but four scarecrows formed the display! The winning entrant was 'The Mad Hatters Tea Party' by Jason and Sarah Goddard.

Everybody who completed the Scarecrow Spotter Sheet was entered into a draw. The lucky winner of the draw and hence the coveted title of 'Best Scarecrow Spotter' is Vicky Hurrell.

Congratulations to The Goddards and to Vicky!

We will be holding a socially-distanced ceremony to award Certificates and the 2x £25 Bunwell Stores Gift Cards donated by Bunwell Parish Council. As always, watch this space!

At the time of publication: we had raised the awesome amount of £824 for the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity. Thank you to everybody who has donated so far. There is still time to donate via our JustGiving page, but we will be closing the fundraiser in the near future so that the money can be transferred to the N&NH Charity and go to support the vital work they do.

Thank you to everybody who built a scarecrow and to everybody who went scarecrow-spotting!

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

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.

Spread the Word

 To help publicise the Scarecrow Hunt we have created a poster which can be downloaded from here. There is a large A4 poster or if that is too big another containing two smaller A5 posters . It would be great if you could print the poster out and display in your area. Remember the more people that take part the more fun the scarecrow hunt will be and the more money can raised for the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital Charity.
