It’s that time of year again when the Llanfrechfa Village Association holds it annual scarecrow competition. This year the Walled Garden project’s entry was Wales’ first Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas, complete with yellow jersey, Welsh flag and a bike!
We know he rode like the wind during the competition but the day the team put him in place at the entrance to the Llanfrechfa Grange hospital site, it was so blustery he nearly took off!
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped put him together. Our scarecrow was awarded joint 2nd place by the Llanfrechfa Village Association which we are very pleased with. The winner was War Horse, commemorating World War 1 by Caerleon and District, which was very well done. You can find pictures of the other entries at the Llanfrechfa Village Association’s Facebook page.
We are delighted to announce that our entry into this year’s Llanfrechfa Village Association’s Scarecrow competition has won joint 1st prize for ‘Dorothy and Friends’ from the Wizard of Oz. The judges described them as “true works of art”!
We hope you like them. Everyone had great fun making them and we are grateful to all our volunteers who helped out. They were made with lots of items recycled from the Walled Garden.
You can see the other entries around Llanfrechfa village this weekend. There is also a fun day on Sunday 10th September 4 – 7 pm in the car park of The Gate, organised by Llanfrechfa Village Association.
Dorothy and Friends will remain in place at the entrance to the Llanfrechfa Grange site until at least the 11th September, after which they will find a home back within the Walled Garden.
