THE crows briefly disappeared from Powick and Callow End last weekend as 21 scarecrows took to the streets!
The standard of entry was very high and the ‘nursery rhyme’ theme produced many different scarecrows.
There were two Doctor Fosters in puddles; three men in a tub with sausages, flour and candles; the farmer’s wife and three blind mice; the old woman who lived in a shoe; Little Jack Horner complete with plum; Little Miss Muffet; Jack and Jill; Old King Cole; Mary quite contrary in her garden (two); the Owl and the Pussy Cat; Teddy Bears having picnics; See-saw Margery Daw; Ride a Cock Horse; and a medley of nursery rhyme characters in one tableau.
Apart from individual entries in the competition, three businesses had entered: Stanbrook Abbey staff, Early Doors Nursery and Pole Elm garage. A raffle and refreshments took place at St Peter’s Church during the weekend but the results of the best scarecrows are not known as this column goes to press.
Last Sunday, Canon Robert Jones the Diocesan Training Officer, took the Communion services at Powick and at St James’, Callow End.
