Scare­crow trail is a big suc­cess

Hinckley Times - - PAST TIMES -

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.”
