If you live in Curry Rivel could you make a SCARECROW for the event? Secure it to your front wall, hedge or railings. Any time from 17th June.
All you need is your dad's old overalls (erm, ask him first!), an upturned saucepan for a hat, a bit of paint, broom handles and some imagination. Here's my effort – it has been guarding my pond from herons now for nearly nine years. You can do better than that and it's high time I thought about bringing in Scarecrow MkII.
Dont forget, scarecrows come in many guises – a person, an animal, a beast entirely of your own imagination. Happy creating!
