This year’s Scarecrow Competition has a regal theme and a record number of entries. The competition was judged by the Reverend Gill Nicholls who said she found it very difficult to choose a winner out of the seventeen entries. She and husband Colin made a very handsome scarecrow of Henry VIII, now standing outside St Peter’s Church, although this wasn’t entered into the competition. That may be just as well as the girls at the Visitor Centre also choose Henry as their royal and made each of his six wives too. Neptune, King of the Sea, was another popular subject with one appearing outside Mon Plasir Stores and another in the Seigneurie Gardens. The winner was a group of four scarecrows made by the Chatterton Family and friends depicting a colourful, fairy tale Royal garden party that can be seen at Dos Dane. The very splendid Grenadier Palace Guard at the top of Port a la Jument lane came second, made by the Baker and Rose family. The Scarecrow Quiz Trail continues until Monday 11th June and entry forms are available from the Visitor Centre.
