Scarecrow Competition

What a surprise!!!! By Sue Stone When   we   adopted   a   Scarecrow   theme   to   the   show   and   introduced   scarecrows   it   was   hoped   to   stimulate   interest   in   the   Village   show.   The   Committee   thought   if   we   get   10, and   more   people   came   to   the   show,   it   would   be   good.   We   did   not   expect   to   get   ambushed   with   over   50   scarecrows   popping   up   all   over   the   village.   What   a   fantastic   effort. They   made   people   smile   and   talk   to   each   other   and   helped   generate   a   sense   of   community.   Although   we   did   lose   a   few   heads   and   hats   and   dogs   and   some   were vandalized at the end it rather pales into insignificance when one consider the riots and events in our inner cities this week. I   went   round   with   the   judge   and   it   was   a   really   difficult   task.   It   is   only   one   opinion   and   not   everyone   could   win   a   prize.   There   was   only   half   a   point   between   the   winners   so the judge decided to award joint seconds and thirds. Fortunately we had enough rosettes to award to third place. The results are as follows Juniors 1st Pip Barnard ‘Lunchtime’ 2nd Claire Syrett ‘Happy Hippy’ 3rd Pupils of Bere Regis 1st School ‘Rooney’ Highly Commended Pupils of Bere Regis 1st School ‘Vicki the Vampire’ Pupils of Bere Regis 1st School ‘The Fat Controller’ Imogen Cheeseman ‘Gertrude’ Senior Competition 1st Spar Shop Team ‘Sleeping’ Joint Second Sue Steggals ‘Lady muck aka Countess of Shitterton’ The Gilbert Family ‘The Mermaid Queen’ Griffins Gardens Residents ‘Crowbuster Russell’ Joint Third The Lillie Family ‘Captain Blessed’ Sarah Welton Ooops sorry Highly Commended David, Sue and Rita Burns ‘Tramp and Missy Bere’s Head’ Rosemary Cleave ‘Moi’ Commended The Munnings Family Gone Fishing
