Ford & Etal Estates have some spooktacular family fun for you this Hallowe'en! Follow the famous Scarycrow Trail, it's all out of doors so come along in your family bubbles and help judge which is the best Scarycrow of 2020. The locals have embraced the challenge this year and there are 29 Scarycrows for you to see, all dotted around the Estates.
You can download your Scarycrow 2020 Trail Map and judging sheet below, or you can pick up Trail maps from a box outside the Lavender Tearooms in Etal, the Visitor Centre at Heatherslaw and at Ford Village Shop. There is no charge for the Trail Map, but we are raising money for Radio Borders Cash for Kids charity so if you could spare some money please pop it in the donation boxes.
When you have finished marking the Scarycrows please leave your completed score sheet in the collection box outside the Lavender Tearooms, at the Visitor Centre Heatherslaw, or at Ford Village Shop. All your scores will be added together and the Scarycrow that gets the most points will be awarded a prize, so please let us know what you think.
There is also a creepy treasure hunt at Ford Village, the starting point is at Ford Village Shop, and with admission to Lady Waterford Hall and Heatherslaw Cornmill a spider trail and a spooky trail! Children in fancy dress will be offered treats at venues and attractions across the Estates.
This is the first event that Ford & Etal Estates have been able to run this year. We welcome you back!
Please stay safe, remember to maintain social distancing but have fangtastic fun too!
