Get stuffed! Time to build up your scarecrow

SCOTTISH WEEK is almost upon Stranraer and here's an early entry for this year's scarecrow competition in the town's Liddesdale Road. Organisers say it's easy to get involved and there are great prizes – just let you imagination run wild and create a scarecrow. “Get your family creative hat on to make a fun or serious scarecrow. Lots of towns across the UK do these as regular events, so we thought we'd include it in the Stranraer Scottish Week. “There is £100 worth of prizes up for grabs, but you have to be in it to win it! “Scarecrows can be any size – full size in the garden, perhaps, or doll size for the window – they all count.” They're also encouraging shops to take part to get things started." To enter, send photos to the Scottish Week website upload page or send them through Facebook. The closing date for entries is next Tuesday, July 28. The traditional parade through the town centre is having to be rethought and so children are being encouraged to don fancy dress at home, get their photo taken “striking a pose”. Send it in to become part of the Virtual Scottish Week Fancy Dress competition. For more on Scottish Week and its efforts to bring the community together, see www.stranraerscottishweek.co.uk
