Scarecrow Competition 2008

The villagers were very enthusiastic with some brilliant ideas added to which there was also a great atmosphere amongst the competitors' said one of the organisers. Judging was done by Ex Mayor and Local Councillor Les Sims accompanied by Brenda Mitchell and Jack Bailey. The results were a closely guarded secret until Saturday, 6th September, when they were announced at the Annual Flower & Vegetable Show. The Show was held in the Church Hall in Gote Lane when the winners received a trophy and a certificate along with a badge to display on the winning Scarecrow. The Committee planned to make this an annual event to coincide with the Flower and Veg Show which is now in its 18th successful year.

Sadly during the week some Scarecrows were wilfully damaged and one was even set on fire but the villagers overcome these problems and replaced their Scarecrows with even greater enthusiasm.

Following are pictures of most of them:-
