Bramham Open Gardens is joining forces with the village Scarecrow trail again this year.

Sunday will see the theme Gardens and Gardeners and organisers have confirmed that there are already a lot of entries.

“The village scarecrow trail had its first year last year and as it was so popular it was decided to run it again,” explained spokesman Keith Innocent.

“Across the village scarecrows of all shapes and sizes will be appearing in gardens and public spaces.

“Lots of local community groups are entering and we hope that all the scarecrows will be retained to be shown at the church during Harvest Festival weekend in October.”

The day starts off at 10am when the scarecrow trail will open. Maps will be available from the Senior Citizen Shelter where the Yorkshire Countrywomens Association will be serving refreshments all day.

At 2pm there will be a plant sale at the Pavilion at the playing fields on the corner of Aberford Road and Freely Lane. From there the Open Gardens route will start around the village. Also included will be the Jubilee Garden and the Aberford Road Allotments.

The scarecrow trail is free and maps for the Open Gardens event will be £3 per person.

Pictured at last year’s event are brothers Jude (six) and Archie Taylor (seven). (1406223AM2)
