The Micralite Scarecrow Trail

With your help we can create the biggest and best scarecrow trail in Yorkshire. We are working with over 200 schools in our region and every school is invited to let their imagination run wild and create the most amazing scarecrows. The scarecrow trail will meander round the amazing Broughton Hall Estate giving hours of fun and detective work for your children. The Scarecrow Trail is supported by Micralite, who will be there to help navigate with their amazing foldable strollers.

Micralite strollers were designed by two dads who wanted to make life easier for other parents, by combining the robust build of off-road strollers with the manoeuvrability and compact fold of lightweight city strollers. Every element has been engineered to help parents get out there, wherever it is they want to go. For more information visit micralite.com.
