THE Friends of Slingsby School (FOSS) held this year’s annual scarecrow competition via social media.

Traditionally, held over the May Day weekend, the event raises funds for the school.

A spokesperson for FOSS said: “As a way of carrying on tradition, the scarecrow competition was held this year via our Facebook page. We had 11 entries ranging from Frozen characters to the Queen.

“The winning entry was from the Ponting family with Thank you, Baked Potato (by Matt Lucas) who win a £30 Groovy Moo voucher.

“Hopefully we’ll be back bigger and better next year.”
