On Thursday, we had our 3rd Scarecrow Festival at the Dig In allotment. This time the theme was "Space", and we were lucky enough to get a whole host of scarecrows from local schools and uniformed groups, as well as one from our work team.
Pupils from local schools came to put up their scarecrows and then enjoyed a look around the allotment and tasting food made with produce from the allotment, including Kathy's famous courghette and chocolate cake.
Thank you to all our contributors - Bramcote Park, Foxwood and St. John's Schools, Bramcote Park Guides, Stapleford Cubs and Stapleford Beavers. Thanks also to all the volunteers who helped on the day.
The scarecrows will be on the allotment for the next few weeks, after which we can lend them out to local allotment holders.
