This year’s festival will run from 28th August to 6th September and organisers say it is an ideal opportunity to say a big thank you to NHS workers and other essential workers, who have been stars in supporting the local community. Any other type of scarecrow will be fun too – the wackier the better!
Entry costs just £1 per scarecrow with forms available from Brothers, the Rectory Mansion Coffee Shop, Premier Store and 18 Quay Lane. For enquiries email [email protected] or visit www.bragiow.co.uk.
Closing date for entries is 21st August, with trail maps available from the above from 27th August onwards.
Over the weekend of 29th/30th/31st August, Brading will also be hosting a ‘Sale Trail’.
This event is like a car boot, but instead of you taking your goodies to a sale, people come to you! The addresses will be added to the scarecrow Trail map and will cover the whole of the Brading area.
The registration closing date is 12th August. Entry is £5 for the 3 days.
Proceeds from these events will support the local community.
