Scarecrow Weekend

Scarecrow Weekend 16th & 17th July 2022

It was brilliant to have 43 scarecrows for the last Scarecrow event run by Sue & Steve.  Well done and thank you so much to everyone who helped in any way with the weekend fun and who put up all the fantastic scarecrows!  The prizes for the most correct answers have been given out and a list of the raffle prize winners is on the Village Notice Board.  The event raised £578.65 which will go towards the upkeep of the Village Hall.  We have volunteers (!) who will take over the Cream Teas next year, Pat and Mike will still sell ices and hopefully someone will take over the organisation of the Scarecrows themselves.  (If you would like to do this, please leave a comment here or ring Steve.)  It would be lovely for someone to take us into the 24th year of Aston le Walls Scarecrows!
(By the way, no one got Number 43 Retyred Alien completely right – very clever!)

Scarecrow Weekend 2021

Great to be able to hold the Scarecrow Trail Event in Aston le Walls this weekend (July 3rd/4th).  Thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the success of this fun occasion; everyone who made a Scarecrow (they were brilliant!); and all the people who racked their brains and came up with wonderful answers.  There will be a list of answers on the Village Hall notice board, meanwhile here are pictures of the Scarecrows with their captions.  We didn’t manage to get pictures of number 29 (which was The Owl and the Pussycat) or number 34 (Painting the Roses Red) but if anyone has photographs of those Scarecrows, please send them here or put them on the Village Facebook page and we will include them.  If you’d like to see a bigger image, just click on the thumbnails below.
