Scarecrow Weekend 12th & 13th September 2015
This Year we have a Theme, Cartoon Character's and Children's Books

Once again we were extremely lucky with the weather and the turnout was amazing with Sunday being very busy. We decided to create a theme this year which proved to be very successful (Children's books and Cartoon Characters) with plenty of the villages producing some colourful scarecrows.

We had live music throughout the weekend and plenty of places to each including Indian, Stone baked Pizza, Caribbean, burgers and Hotdogs to name a few. We had 3 Tractor and Trailers constantly taking visitors around the village to view the Scarecrows.

Monies are still being counted and as always the proceeds will be divided up between various Village groups and local Charities. The prize winners for the various Scarecrow categories are as follows:

Scarecrows come in a variety of guises, some telling a story others with animation, while some look remarkably like their owners. The speed camera policeman scarecrow did an excellent job of slowing down the traffic on the Main Road and the schoolboy soaked passers by when they were not looking.
