New Cumnock Development Trust recently held a summer scarecrow competition which lots of families across the town took it part in.

After everyone sent in their brilliant entries, judges took the time to pick out the top three summer scarecrows which was a hard decision to make.

First Place was Lucas Ferguson with “A-Straw-Naut”, Second place was Daisy MacDonald with “Rabbies Rest” and third place was Iniya Phillips with her “Gardener” scarecrow.

Well done to all.


Scotland is in lockdown, shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Cumnock Chronicle, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1901 is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Cumnock Chronicle  in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks - and stay safe.
