The Annual Scarecrow Festival

Every year at the start of Autumn Belbroughton hosts it's annual Scarecrow Festival.  The weather was beautiful, a perfect day for a walk around this lovely village and see all the hard work.

This year the theme was Icons From History.

Robin Hood

Fryer Tuc

I thin Oliver thought they were real presents, lol

I think this one was the overall winner, I Want To Rake Free :-)

So much thought and effort went into making these scarecrows, I think this was my favourite, 
Jack the Reaper - Wanted Cereal Killer

This one was Interesting

 And finally, nothing at all to do with the scarecrows, but Belbroughton has this really cool phone box which has been de-commissioned and is now owned by the the village I believe.  They have turned it into a place where books are exchanged.
How ingenious! 

Now THATS the sort of village I would like to live in :-)
