Scarecrow trail is a big success
FROM Hay-ry Potter to Rubeus Hay-grid, a variety of scarecrows were on display around the village of Stoney Stanton for their first ever trail.
Hundreds of visitors gathered to the village which had been transformed with scarecrow doppelgangers and characters from children’s favourite films.
St Michael’s Church was on hand with refreshments and sandwiches to refuel the scarecrow hunters across the weekend and there was an opportunity for children to play and take part in craft activities too,
The winning scarecrow, as voted for by village members, was Treasure Island by Mr and Mrs Lavender, with second place awarded to Recycle-osaurus by Hannah Payne and third place given to Harvest Moon by Laura Abell.
Event organiser Sarah Piggott, said that the weekend was a tremendous success.
She added: “It has been a fantastic fundraiser which will go towards enriching the school life of the children of Manorfield. Myself and members of the school’s PTFA would like to thank the volunteers at Stoney Stanton Community Library for their support and the use of the facility over the weekend.”
