from the KC News website:

scarecrowThe great Kapiti Scarecrow Competition is on and organiser James Bishop is welcoming all entries.

“If you or your family want to make a Scarecrow and place the Scarecrow at the bottom of the bank along the wall or in our Vegetable Beds please do so before August 23 2020.
“Then take a photo of it in the garden and tag Waikanae Beach Community Garden, like our Facebook page and attach your image to be in to Win.”

James says there are three ways to win:

1, Best Scarecrow individual. Made by any person in our community.

2, Family Made. Made by you and one or more person in your family.

3, Peoples Choice. Chosen by the community.

“Winners will be announced at our Spring Festival when we are planning to have a Seed and Seedlings Swap meeting in early spring. So get creative and have fun.”

For any inquires don’t hesitate to contact James on the Waikanae Beach Community Garden Facebook Page

Although making an effigy of Mayor Guru as a scarecrow might be tempting, it could run foul of the Political Correctness Brigade 🙂 –Eds
