Cllr Dayley Lawrence, mayor of Bradley Stoke, said:

“I am delighted that so many people and organisations have come forward to make scarecrows as all the money raised will go to the mayor’s charities which are Mamas Bristol, The Brightwell Centre and Prostate Cancer UK. I really look forward to judging the scarecrows. This year the theme for the trail is ‘international’ to celebrate all the people in the world and the diverse cultures which we live in and embrace within the community of Bradley Stoke.”

Cllr Natalie Field, deputy mayor of Bradley Stoke, added:

“The scarecrow trail is great fun for families with children, but anyone can do it. It’s an enjoyable way of getting out and about and to be active whilst finding the scarecrows then working out which countries they represent. It’s wonderful as well that the people/organisations who have made the scarecrows are making them out of recycled materials. It shows people care about their environment.”


Libby from the Brightwell Centre, who has worked alongside the council, remarked:

“The Brightwell are very excited to be part of the Charity Scarecrow Trail event this year. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs including day trips to local attractions and meals out to be won. I hope the community really enjoy this engaging activity through half-term and wish everyone luck in finding the scarecrows and identifying which countries they represent.”
