Bottesford’s scarecrow-makers, inspired by the theme of Hollywood, surpassed themselves this year, with an astonishing display of wit, ingenuity, creativity and skill. A total of 46 scarecrows were on display. The sun shone (a week before we ‘enjoyed’ an Arctic Spring Bank Holiday) and the festival was a great success. Here are some of the highlights.

  • As Vice Chair for Friends who organise this event have only just come across this excellent page. Well done to the authors. Do we have permission to have a link from our school web site to this and visa versa under our Friends page?

    Not sure if you know but the event has moved to 14th and 15th June.
