Scarecrow whips up festival fever
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.
