The Wolverton Scarecrow Festival 2013

23 Sep

Every year our town has a scarecrow festival.

Our house is on the route and every year I think we should get involved. Somehow I just never quite get around to it.

This year I finally got on and made a scarecrow, popped it in the front garden and ambled along to the meeting point to do the walk.

I was amazed at the time, creativity and effort that went into making many of the scarecrows.

Many chose to highlight current affairs and raise awareness of some serious issues such as-

The Drinking Culture


Crime and punishment



Dysfunctional Families



The Environment


Others chose to cover literature and pop culture-



The Twits



Gangnam Style!


There was even a Royal baby.


The standard was high. My cursory attempt will have to do for this year.


I will have to start planning next years Scarecrow
