THE winners of Douglas Flower Show’s fourth annual scarecrow competition had 101 reasons to celebrate.

For the top entry by Tom Kirkland and Robert Barclay – Crowella de Ville – was based on the hit 1961 Walt Disney movie 101 Dalmations, featuring battleaxe villain Cruella de Vil.

“There was a really high standard of entry into this year’s competition,” said Douglas Flower Show secretary Joan Gold.
