Drum roll, please...
The winners were.... (with some comments from Christine in italics )
1st - The scarecrow crow, 41 Zion Street. Clever use of black binliners; a crow to scare
crows - cunning!; a very smart idea.
2nd - BFG, 4 Childsbridge Way. Scary face!
3rd Ninja Turtle, Church Street Green. The face is just perfect - I loved him!
4th Toady Tony, 4 Middle Lane. A brilliant traditional scarecrow
5th Peg Leg Pirate Pete, Flat 4, Bretaneby. Love the plank wedged into the window - good use of upper-floor window.
Also, Christine particularly loved
Hungry Caterpillar, Church Yard.
Chez Seal, 41 High Street.
Banana Man, Top-Banana Pre-school.
and commented that ...
The mermaid (4 Childsbridge Lane) was appropriately disturbing,
and 'Donald' (5 Childsbridge Road) was almost as scary as the real thing.
She said that : Choosing between these scarecrows was tough. They were all superb.
Thank you for making these impossible decisions for us, Christine. We really appreciate the time and trouble you took.
