What a fantastic day -wonderful static scarecrows and an escapee on a tractor😂....Who would have thought a couple of months ago that we could achieve such a brilliant day safely - and with social distancing! Thank you to everyone who has who has entered, walked, judged and voted. Every scarecrow was a credit to their creators and it has been extremely difficult to choose the first three places.
However - here goes....
First place goes to Jo and Paul, 11 Duchy Close with Boris and baby Wilfred
Second place goes to the Chadwicks with their tribute to the fire service ( how many of you got wet?😂)
And third place goes to Rachael and co at 14 Duchy Close for their testing centre well done everyone and thank you so much for supporting this event.
Prizes will be distributed tomorrow.
And lastly thank you very much to Adrian for your support!
Take care everyone!

[19:49:29] Resident101:

Thank you. Glad everyone has enjoyed the quizzes. It’s been fun for me too. Questions you think will catch people out don’t and then others do. It’s been an experience and learning curve. Thank you everyone. 🙌

You caught me out with your new team name tonight. Brilliant though. Thanks for today it’s been great. Even managed to push mum round to see most of them in the wheelchair she loved it. First time out from hospital appointment for her since February. Thank you 🙏
[19:55:06] Resident101:

[20:03:43] Resident097:

Glad you guys had fun, im not gonna lie its done me a huge favour aswell, lockdown was beginning to become a very dark place for me mentally so to be able to act a complete idiot for a day whilst putting a show on for others and making them smile at the same time was good for my own mental demons too
I spent my life doing events, carshows etc etc but with wverything thats happened its all been put on hold ... I have my festival of fuel hopefully in September if were allowed to run it at the scale we usually do, being able to put on a event even as small as this has been a big mental boost and shown me community spirit love respect and support that i didnt realise was there

From the initial seed being planted
Everyones support
Adrian and carol sorting fliers etc
The tractor braking and several tows from various people
Micheal for the tow
Ian helping me sort the timing out
Cuff towing me in twice and prepared to lend a total stranger his own tractor just to do the run today if needed

You guys for getting behind this and building awesome scarecrows

The kids for making me smile

The church for there efforts and keeping faith and hope in these difficult times

So many of you chucking notes change in the bucket today

You are all amazing each and every one of you

And as your friend and village scarecrow i love you all

So Thankyou !!

[20:06:27] Resident093:

My sister, coming into the village from Newton, reports a lot of rubbish dumped on the verge, black plastic sacks / matress / building waste etc. Not sure if it was within the parish or not!
[20:07:09] Resident097:

[20:11:05] Resident101:

If you like what’s gone on here today you should make it a goal to visit one of the Somerset Carnivals. They entertain 100’s of thousands of people in a night around Guy Fawkes. Google Bridgwater Carnival. I was supposed to be on the Guy Fawkes Cart this November as a special birthday treat but it cancelled ☹️. Take a look a good family weekend away in November.
