This year the event took place on Sunday 14th July 2013. The event included the village trail quiz - a walking trail around the village to seek out clues for a grand prize, a village-life-themed photo competition, an afternoon tea service in the hall and the fabulous Scarecrow trail and competition.
All in all there were over 40 scarecrows in and around the village. We took Daisy the B&B dog on a walk around the village on Sunday afternoon, and we only managed to spot about half of the scarecrows on our usual route. There were some very impressive creations, and even a couple of celebrity appearances, including Sir Bradley Wiggins, Harry Potter, Uncle Sam, and Wallace and Gromit!
It was so lovely to see so many people taking part, walking around the village, and enjoying the summer sunshine, and, as is often the case with these weird and wonderful village traditions, it engendered a great sense of community spirit!
