The votes have been counted and the prize draw has now taken place...
Throughout October half term families were invited to follow the Scarecrow Trail Map, taking them to eighteen stops across the town centre before posting a vote for their favourite in the special postbox in Orpington Library to enter a free prize draw....

Orpington businesses certainly put a lot of effort into their scarecrows - but there could only be one winner.
In a closely fought contest, Orpington's most popular scarecrow for 2019 was voted as 9Round's "Gary" (pictured above with manager Alex and Lamar, looking pleased as punch). We're sure you'll agree he's a knockout! 9Round Orpington win a free advert in the Spring edition of The Orpington 1st Magazine.
Orpington 1st Executive Director, Sharon Baldwin said, "we had a great response to the trail, so thank you to all the families who took part. It proved a fun way of encouraging people to explore their town. Well done to all the businesses for their magnificent creations and of course congratulations to Mia."
Below, a couple of other favourites who just missed out - Linay & Shipp and Fiesta Mexicana.
