Knightley Scarecrow Festival

<imgThis kind of event is increasingly popular and really allows a community to come together and show its individuality.  This is exactly what we found at Knightley! At the Church, quite a number of residents had come together to add their own contribution and make a wonderful display.

The Famous Five (no names, no pack drill but you know who you are!) wrought havoc in the churchyard trying to put up bunting, herd sheep and clear up the leaves! A well-known local character was depicted on the bench outside reading to one of the children while inside the church, a baptism was taking place with a scary-looking vicar holding forth in the pulpit. I can’t think who that might represent!!


Two of the impressive displays



There were displays throughout the village and tractor and trailer rides took visitors from the Village Hall on a route which included both Knightley and High Offley Church - where Noah’s Ark and the animals had come to rest in the churchyard.

An enormous cow sitting on the triangle near the school, which was made of large round bales, won the prize for the favourite display (see front cover).

All in all, this was a great event and there's no doubt that the process of creating and displaying the scarecrows was just as enjoyable and rewarding as the sense of pride when it was all done.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
