Scare­crow whips up fes­ti­val fever

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Home Help With A Difference -

Hec­tor the Char­ing scare­crow has been out and about pro­mot­ing a fes­ti­val of tal­ent and flow­ers at the vil­lage’s St Peter and St Paul’s Church.

He is en­cour­ag­ing all those with a creative streak to en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion to de­sign the best scare­crow. All en­tries will be on pa­rade in the vil­lage over the week­end of Septem­ber 20 to 22.

A spokesman for Hec­tor said: “He has re­ally caught the imag­i­na­tion of the vil­lage. His so­cial life is busier than mine and he is re­ally get­ting about, pro­mot­ing the fes­ti­val and en­cour­ag­ing the vil­lage to pull to­gether for what should be a great event.”

Fes­ti­val pro­ceeds will go to the church and Can­ter­bury Oast Trust.

Scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion forms can be found at the post of­fice.
