There was not much to be scared of when Mayor of Gravesham John Caller judged a scarecrow competition.

To celebrate Gravesham in Bloom, the council has put the best of the scarecrows on display at various locations around the town.

Judging alongside the mayor were Tony Salerno, owner of restaurant Il Padrino, and the owners of fancy dress and dancewear shop Bustles & Breeches, Maureen and Jack Hills.

First prize was awarded to 1st Chalk Guides who designed Poppie, described as a “funky Guide with pink hair, leggings, tutu and mascot bear”.

Second prize went to Emmanuel Baptist Church youth club, which runs out of the Windmill Street church.

Their Cowboy was described as “environmentally friendly, made using recycled bottles, and is designed to compliment the recycled greenhouse for the Gravesham in Bloom project”.

Third place went to Wilma, created by the Women’s Institute.

First prize was a hamper from Broadditch Farm, second prize was a meal for two at Il Padrino and third prize was two tickets to a show at The Woodville.
