Scarecrow Weekend

I would like to personally thank Lilian Welsby for her enthusiasm and hard work and also to the many people who helped her, some who worked with her the whole week prior to and during the week-end.  To give up a week of your holiday, as Lilian did, to organize a charity event is to be greatly admired.  I was told that on Saturday morning there were about 80 Scarecrows in and around the village and the Church was beautiful and the Wedding Party fascinating.  It was wonderful that so many people wanted to take part.  Thank you Lilian and ALL your helpers

A few of the Scarecrows are going to do their rightful job, frightening pigeons and crows, on a farm near Stratford for a suitable fee!

[I feel we should try to get the number of scarecrows tied down a little.  Gwyn sat and counted the ones in the photographs in the booklet that is offered for sale elsewhere in this publication.  She claims to have counted 99 scarecrows, not including the Dalek or the maypole dancers.  I have no intention of arguing with her.  Editor]
