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
