Scarecrow winners announced

Stratford district’s annual Scarecrow Trail is coming to an end this Friday 13 November, but there’s still time to jump on the trail and check out the scarecrows including our category winners! 

If you haven’t already, grab a map from the Stratford i-SITE or online here.

Across the 90 entries our sponsors had a tough job choosing their winners, with so many creative and well thought out scarecrows on the trail.
