Scarecrow Weekend

Today my wife and I took the kids to a small village near us called Belbroughton.
Why did you take them there? I hear you ask, well I'm about to tell you.

Every year at around this time the village comes alive with visitors flocking to see their scarecrows.
Yes you heard me correctly their scarecrows, some of you may about now be thinking god good what's fun about scarecrows, obviously you haven't been to Belbroughton scarecrow weekend.

For 16 years now they have annually held this weekend of fun for all the family. The villagers make their own scarecrows and display them outside their houses. This year after a competition vote the village chose the theme 'What Made Britain Great'.

Their were all kinds of decorated scarecrows from Winston Churchill to Wayne Rooney from Florence Nightingale to Mary Poppins and from Margaret Thatcher to Mo Farah.

As well as having all the wonderful scarecrows to see the boys got to make their own animal feeds at the RSPB stand, stroke a skunk at the animal stand and have their picture taken with a pumpkin man.

All in all it was a fun afternoon out for everyone.
