Kenninghall Scarecrow festival 2020 sees some fantastic entries fielded




Residents showed off their creative sides with a series of entries in an inaugural scarecrow festival.

The event, which saw scarecrows placed in gardens around Kenninghall, took place at the weekend.

Heidi Glendenning, 38, who organised the event, said: “We came up with the idea after seeing a teddy bear festival in Great Ellingham.

“It’s a community activity wecould all get involved with, while raising money for a good cause.”

More than 20 entries were on show, with each participating household donating £5 or more towards the upkeep of St Mary’s Church.

Refreshments were available at the church throughout the weekend, and prizes were awarded to the scarecrows judged to be the most creative.

Jo Knox, 40, who entered the competition with an NHS superman scarecrow donated to her by two ex-teachers, said: “I’ve lived in the village for 30 years and love to get involved community activities.

“I’m a midwife and hope to reuse the scarecrow at the University of East Anglia, where I teach student midwives.”
