Scarecrowy Stanwick

Lately, I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for cheap date nights for Dan and I.  We’re still trying to fit in one date night each week where we get out of the house and laptops and phones are not allowed!
This week our date night was a walk to the nearby village of Stanwick, where there is currently a Stanwick Scarecrow Festival taking place!

Stanwick scarecrowsWhat is a Scarecrow Festival?  Several of the houses in Stanwick have given £2 to have their scarecrows displayed in their front gardens and included on the Scarecrow map.  For £1 you can buy maps from a couple of places in the village and go on a ‘Scarecrow Hunt’!

The large scarecrow and a slightly slimmer scarecrow sat outside the Weight Watchers meeting point made me smile as well.

There were a couple of the scarecrows wearing the local school and playgroup uniforms.

A poor paratrooper had missed his landing spot and was dangling off the edge of a roof.

And we caught Spiderman making a web between two trees.

Stuff like this always makes me miss living in a little village!  Does the town/village you live in do anything similar?
