This year’s East Markham Scarecrow Trail, Tabletop and Garage Sales will be on Saturday 12th May. Scarecrows must be within East Markham but viewers from far and wide are very welcome to follow the trail. The first Scarecrow Trail in East Markham was last year and it proved one of the most successful and fun events of the year, so the organisers are hoping to repeat or even improve on that this year.
To be included on the Trail it is necessary for scarecrows and garage sales to be within East Markham and to register (scarecrows £1.00, garage sales £5.00) at least a week before to enable the best route to be calculated and printed. The Trail Map of both scarecrows and garage sales will be available from the East Markham Village Hall foyer (NG22 0SS) from 10.00am on Saturday 12th May (free of charge, kindly sponsored by East View Designs). You can vote for your three favourite scarecrows (by 3.00pm) and the three most popular receive cash prizes (£20.00, £15.00 and £10.00, awards at 4.00pm).
A note on tabletop sales — it is not necessary to pre-book tables for tabletop sales, you can just turn up on the day (from 9.00am) but there is a limit of 20 tables. To avoid disappointment pre-booking is advised but not compulsory. Persons from outside East Markham are welcome to run tabletop sales. For further details and to register call Amy on 01777 949288. Please register before Saturday 5th May.
