The Annual 1st Highworth Scouts Easter Scarecrow Trail was held between Saturday 1st April to Sunday 16th April on the theme of “Animated Film”.

Many thanks to everyone that provided a Scarecrow to make the Easter Scarecrow trail possible. In particular, Visit Highworth, The Saracens Head and Allen & Harris for selling the trail maps. In addition, the Scouts would also like to thank: Print Clever for printing the trail sheets for free; and Andrews Quality Meats, Highworth Emporium, The Highworth, Bloomfields and Weigh it Up for donating the prizes.

The Scarecrow Trail is organised by 1st Highworth Scouts with all

funds raised going to support the beavers, cubs and scouts of Highworth, this year we managed to raise over £500.

The prize for most popular scarecrow, as voted by people taking part, was for Despicable Me. All the answers are below this report and you can remind yourself of the scarecrows in our 2024 scarecrows photo gallery which can be seen at
