Tomorrow is the big day. All scarecrows can come out to play by lunchtime and they will be available to view thereafter. Maps of the scarecrow trail will be placed in the bus shelter at the end of Rectory Lane in the morning. For those of you who want to download a copy there is a link at the end of this post.
There is no pathway to the scarecrow at South Lodge. Paul and Hilary Shepley welcome people to go and see their scarecrow but they have suggested that people drive down rather than risk walking along the side of the main road.
Please remember that social distancing rules still apply so go and see the scarecrows in your “bubbles”.
Please take pictures of yourselves and your scarecrows and we will put them into a gallery on the village website (if you don’t ming being on the Internet). Take pictures of your favourite scarecrows and send them in as well. Use the firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address.
One final thought: it was supposed to be a nice weekend but the Met Office now say that there is a 50% chance of showers on Saturday. You might want to have a contingency plan if your scarecrow isn’t waterproof (ours isn’t) and cover them over or take them into shelter on Friday night then put them out again once the weather situation becomes clear.
