2019 DATES: Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May
This popular annual event is managed by and for the benefit of Keevil School, not the village or villagers of Keevil. It is the largest fundraising event the school holds, and 10% of the profits go to local charities.
- In 2018 £400 was donated to St Leonard’s Church, £400 to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, and £250 to the Keevil Community Shed.
- In 2017 the donation was split between St Leonard’s Church, The Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Keevil Community Shed via Keevil Parish Council. In addition to this, the school children collected donations in the car park for Cancer Research and raised £282.75.
- In 2016 donations were made to Keevil Parish Council and Wiltshire Young Carers.
Any feedback residents would like to make relating to the Scarecrow Trail should be directed to the Parish Council Clerk, so that they can be addressed collectively when meeting with councillors to plan for the event.
At the request of the Chairman of the Parish Council, from 2018 onwards the event name should be corrected to “The Keevil School Scarecrow Trail”. The Chairman also attended a meeting with the Scarecrow Organising Committee at which she pointed out that some visitors following the trail onto the Playing Field had let their dogs onto the main field which is prohibited.
