Recently, in the London and South East region, a number of our services held a competition to see who could produce the best scarecrow; there were some great entries as can be seen in the photographs.

The people we support and staff teams threw themselves into the challenge. Some staff even came to work on the judging day dressed as scarecrows!

Everyone who got involved really enjoyed the activity and there was lots of fun and laughter. The people we support got involved in all elements, from buying clothes for them to stuffing the bodies, making paper-mache heads, painting them, dressing them and creating scenes for them.

Once all of the scarecrows had been made they were then photographed and shared around the whole company for people to cast their votes on their favourite entry.

People who live and work at Maldon House, Cloverdale, Coneyhurst, Eastbourne Road, Lynfords, The Marshes, Oak Lodge and Hill View all joined in the fun.

The winning services were Oak Lodge and Hill View, who entered a joint effort. Locality manager Caroline Robbins who organised the competition, said: “I believe they won because not only were their scarecrows excellent but also because everyone got involved and even some of the staff dressed up too which was great to see!”

The competition was a great success with votes coming in from all around the company. We look forward to next year and maybe this will become a company-wide contest in the future.
