To refresh your memory here is a selection of the scarecrows which were on display this year.
The results from the online voting for the favourite scarecrow were:
1st ‘Mike from Monsters Inc’ – Badcock Road,
2nd ‘The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me’ – High Street,
3rd ‘Henry VIII & His Wives’ – New Road.
The Church bells heralded the start of a true village celebration. Children and parents congregated at the Methodist Church for the Fancy Dress procession to the Recreation Ground and then the day took off!!
I am sorry to inform every one that we have cancelled the Adults’ Race around the Village due to be held on Saturday at 2.00 pm. Application forms were due in by last Friday and to date we have received just two entries. The 1977 event proved popular but not so in 2016.
There is however still lots going on at the weekend at we look forward to seeing you there for all, if not part of the festivities.
Best wishes Jenny
We still require help and below is list of what is still needed:
