This year we had twelve scarecrows and they were all magnificent.
They are rather fun and this year we had reports from the entrants who had worked
in teams as to
how much fun they had getting together planning and working on the scarecrows. We all had fun looking at them.
There were two cats in the hats and three Humpty Dumpty’s; Dr
Foster had stepped into a hedge, Miss Muffet and a spider. Dennis the Menace
and Gnasher were seen
hanging on a window sill in North Street. In West Street Bill and Ben were on a window sill. There was a startling and amazing sight of Bart Simpson on a skate board. Travelling
around we could find Zebedee, the Hulk, and Spiderman.
Our thanks go to David Burns who had the unenviable task of
judging the competition. I know he judged it on whether we could recognize the
character displayed and the
quality and amount of work put in.
