We had an excellent response to our first ever scarecrow competition in Neasham with a total of 13 entrants, and what a great effort was made by those residents.The competition was judged by John Weighell, Chair of Neasham Parish Council and Alex McKee, the Proprietor of the Fox and Hounds in Neasham. Their task was indeed a difficult one with such a high standard of entries. While everyone was a winner for their effort and creativity, after much deliberation the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes were awarded as follows:-
1st Prize 'Scarecrow Family' by the Murphy's. 34 Teesway
2nd Prize 'My Scarecrowing Days are Done' by the Smiths,9, Teesway
3rd prize ' Paralympian' by Barbara Metcalfe, 5, Teesway
The bar has certianly been set high for next year. Well done and a big thankyou to all who took part.
