Every September one our local villages, Charnock Richard, holds a scarecrow festival.  Every year that the children have been home it has been bucketing down with rain for the festival weekend.  This weekend the weather has been glorious, so we finally got the opportunity to take the children to see the scarecrows.

Some people themed their scarecrows around children’s characters:

Postman Pat

Red Riding Hood

Denis the Menace and Gnasher

Tintin and Snowy

Oscar the Grouch

Our friends from Toy Story

We also saw some favourite films:

The Great Escape


War Horse

Local Olympian Bradley Wiggins even made an appearance:We had a lovely day, capped off at the end by the opportunity to sit in a real fire engine:

Sunday afternoons don’t get much better than that!
