Wednesday, August 12


As part of our village fund raising plan we are having a Scarecrow Festival. It was an idea I came up with and before I knew it Friday night approaches - demonstration night - family affair, we take a contribution for the supper table and our own drinks. The theme of the festival is "Tales of Beatrix Potter." We are doing "Mr McGregors Garden. Local businesses can make and display a scarecrow for £5. The local butcher has asked me to make him one so this is what we'll do on Friday - watch this space!

    Your village sounds like a wonderful place to live.

  9. I often see scarecrows in villages on my travels, I will look forward to seeing others from your village.

  10. What a lovely idea! I think your scare crow is a cheeky character. What do the dogs think of it?
