Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE - PETE WAR­RING­TON peter.war­ring­ton@reach­plc.com

IN SPITE of the Satur­day down­pour, this year’s Shep­shed Scaresheep Fes­ti­val has been hailed a great suc­cess with hun­dreds of peo­ple tour­ing the town to look at the creative en­tries.

Busi­nesses and res­i­dents cre­ated spe­cial dis­plays for the fes­ti­val held over Satur­day and Sun­day, which raised money for Shep­shed Vol­un­teer Cen­tre.

Event or­gan­iser Angie Whit­more said: “Af­ter a rather soggy start to the week­end, the Scaresheep fes­ti­val turned out to be an­other suc­cess for the com­mu­nity of Shep­shed.

“There were lots of peo­ple walk­ing around and en­joy­ing the sun­shine on Sun­day.

“We had 26 en­tries, all very dif­fer­ent and in­ven­tive. There was such a lot of hard work put into all the en­tries and we would like to thank ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted.

“Win­ners of the dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories will be an­nounced next week and I’m sure the com­pe­ti­tion will be a tight one.

“We will be run­ning the event again next year, so have a good think about what you might like to cre­ate for the fes­ti­val.”
