Over £900 was raised and the organising committee are definately going to run an even bigger and better event next year.

  1. The scarecrow festival was certainly a “first” for the village and I found it useful having a list of sites so i got the most out of it. I enjoyed the sporty ones – a goalie and a golfer – and the ones that would appeal to children – Thomas the Tank Engine and Postman Pat. Well done the organisers but I wonder if the festival could form part of all the effort that goes into Paxfest, the annual village fayre. It would really make a splendid and different day out for people with many scarecrow sites round the village and the playing field full of varied activities.

  2. We all wish you intrepid night hawks a peacful “sleepover” in Gt Paxton church on Friday night. Make sure the bugs don’t bite! Or did I tell you about that tarantula that escaped when I was showing it to the church warden? Well, you might not find it but it could find you.

    All strength to your elbows – and what a fetching picture!
