BEST SCARECROW for this year resides in Wallsend Road, Pevensey – just north of the railway crossing.
The making of “JEFF THE NORMAN” was a true family effort with 3 generations making Jeff, surrounding him with Norman long ships and even horses galloping on the land. Jeff’s chain mail was knitted by hand from string and then dyed. Many hours of work went into making the whole scene. Well done to Lyn Humphries and family !

She sat on the hedge today, enjoying the view but feeling afraid. She’d heard talk about how some of the scarecrows down the street had been taken or injured last year. So when she was asked if she’d like to go and sit in the sunshine somewhere peaceful she jumped at the chance. She sat smiling on the back of Eric’s bike and took the long ride from Stone Cross to Pevensey Bay. Mum, Janice had a tear in her eye as her beautiful girl waved goodbye. Now Rosie May sits overlooking the allotments, and brings a smile to the faces of the passers by using the footpath.
