Victoria Prentis MP judges Tadmarton Scarecrow Contest


On 21 June, Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, judged the Tadmarton Scarecrow Contest, the finale of the Scarecrow Festival, which has been held annually since 2015. The winning entries were announced on 22 July at a special concert held at the village church. Victoria was very impressed by the creativity of all of the entries, and enjoyed seeing the originality and hard work of Tadmarton residents.

Victoria commented, “It is always a real pleasure to see communities coming together, and throw themselves into village life. As a farmer’s daughter, scarecrows have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was amazed by the wit and variety of the entries. It was very difficult to pick a favourite, but I felt that Fantastic Mr Fox was a worthy winner!”
