The local Prestwich area Police Team have organised a summer ‘scarecrow’ festival and competition to run over the summer as a family event.
They say: “We have had a lot of community events cancelled this year due to COVID so the Prestwich team have put their thinking caps on and we are organising a Prestwich Scarecrow Festival.”
We are asking Prestwich residents to take part in the competition and create a Scarecrow with your family and to visibly display it. Register your entry by sending us a photo of your Scarecrow to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 22nd August 2020.
We will run the festival between 23rd-30th August, with a combined judges and public vote to determine the winners. Prizes will be presented to the winners by the Mayor of Bury, Cllr Tim Pickstone.
A big thank you to our local businesses for donating prizes: Armstrongs Fish and Chips, Croma Restaurant, Marks & Spencer and Tesco.”
