Hay, it’s so great to be back ...

SCARECROWS are pop­ping up once again at the start of the Hal­sall Scare­crow Fes­ti­val.

On pa­rade so far are a chef, Elvis Pres­ley, a golfer and some pigs.

Many more are ex­pected over the next week or so, lead­ing up to the Scare­crow Trea­sure Hunt Week­end on Satur­day, June 16 and Sun­day, June 17. The hunt takes par­tic­i­pants around the vil­lage cen­tre to find the an­swers to ques­tions all about the scarecrows.

Entry forms, at £3, are avail­able from Hal­sall Church be­tween 2pm and 5pm on the Satur­day and Sun­day.

All en­tries - com­pleted or not - will be en­tered into a draw to win some fam­ily-based prizes.

Pro­ceeds will go to Hal­sall Proud & Tidy Group, whose vol­un­teers help to keep the vil­lage look­ing at­trac­tive to both res­i­dents and vis­i­tors.

Visit the Facebook page, “Hal­sall Scare­crow Fes­ti­val”, for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or to mes­sage any ques­tions.
