Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!' This year Bourne Hall is 50 years old and to celebrate its birthday we’re celebrating all things 1960s to help get everyone into a groovy vibe. So why not come on down to Bourne Hall this March and celebrate the first days of spring with us, plus a few extra special guests and surprises from the days of flower power. For more info see:

Also featuring: The Great Scarecrow Competition - Prizes to be won!

Local primary schools and youth groups are invited to enter our competition and create a scarecrow on this year’s 60s theme.

You could create a hippie scarecrow with flowers in its hair or be inspired by members of The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Or perhaps a '60s children’s TV programme such as Captain Pugwash, The Clangers, Sooty or the Magic Roundabout?       

Scarecrow criteria:
•Entries must follow the theme of the 1960s
•Props may be used with the scarecrow.
•Scarecrows must include some plant material which can be living, fresh or dried.
•They should be no taller than 6 feet and be able to withstand all weather conditions.
•The use of recycled materials is encouraged.

Scarecrows must be brought to Bourne Hall by Friday 6 March.

The scarecrows will be judged by the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell
1st place £100 vouchers
2nd place  £50 vouchers
