Thank you to everyone who toured the Village and voted for their favourite scarecrows in our 2023 Scarecrow Festival. This is the first time that EVRA has offered online voting and more than 95% of the votes received were cast this way. There were clear favourites in each category and the winners were presented with their certificates and prizes in the Waitrose Café on Sunday 30 July.
We have included below photos of the prize winners who were able to attend the presentations.
We thank Waitrose for hosting the event and for their sponsorship of prizes for the Standard Scarecrows. We also thank Smith & Pinching for sponsoring the prizes for the Simple scarecrows. It is good to have the support of local businesses for EVRA events and projects.
