Letter from Arley & Ansley Big Local Posted on 23 Sep 2021

Dear Scarecrow makers

Many thanks for taking part in this year's Scarecrow Festival and the hours of work that must have gone into thinking of a subject and making them is truly amazing. There were about 50 places around the villages where people could enjoy your efforts. In addition to our regulars, there were some new makers this year so thank you for having a go.

The weather was kind to us again this year and we seemed to have missed the worst of the rain. The Art Exhibition and Craft Fayre were both busy on Saturday. There were a lot of people walking and driving around the villages on both Saturday and Sunday. I think we just about kept up with the supply of paper maps.

We have upload pictures of the scarecrows to our Flickr photo sharing page where you can see the photos of the scarecrows we found around the villages, if we have missed your scarecrow please send us a photo to the email address below and we will add it to the album. You can find the link to the photo album on our Facebook page or if you type in the link below into a web browser you will go directly to the photographs.

Thank you again for taking the time to make a scarecrow and making our villages a better place for all.

If you have any ideas for next year's theme please get in touch, either by Email or send a text message to 0748 653 4025
