Well Village Title

Well Annual Scarecrow Trail

2020 saw the return of the annual scarecrow trail in Well for the week from 24 August to 31 August.  In tthe light of the current Covid pandemic the event was not as widely publicised as in previous years, however there were a number of visitors from across the county and beyond.

The theme this year was Film and TV shows, and there were 17 entrants.  There were two prizes, one for the most correct answers and the other was decided by Canon David Cleeves who awarded first, second and third placements to the best scarecrows. He found this a difficult decision due to the high standard of entries, but the results were:

First place – The Greatest Showman

Second place – Eddie the Eagle

Third place – Paddington Bear  and 101 Dalmations

Our thanks go to all the residents who took part in the trail, and to Canon David Cleeves.


There were four entries with all 17 correct answers. The winner was drawn by Wendy Cubbis of the Wonderful Well committee. The winner was Thomas who won a £20 voucher for the Milbank Arms, Well.

The proceeds from the event will go into the Wonderful Well community fund, which is used for the benefit of the village.

The 2021 theme will be Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales and will take place from 23 August 2021 to 31 August 2021.
