Bollington Festival science scarecrows

2019 is the official International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.

Having obtained a small grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry for the creation of a Periodic Table themed Scarecrow Trail for the Bollington Festival, the organisers now need people to take part by creating scarecrows for around 20 elements. The elements tin, mercury and einsteinium have already been claimed. Perhaps you have an idea for neon, radium, or ….?

The aim is to have scarecrows built by the start of May and have them in place for the duration of the Festival (10 to 27 May).

Organiser Lindsay Ness will be in the Vale Inn from 7-8pm on Monday 18 Feb to talk to anyone who would like to make a scarecrow and wants to meet others to make one with, or would like to help in any way. No age or ability barriers!
