If you head over to Loughton from Saturday, you’ll find plenty of mysterious characters just hanging around... the village is holding a Scarecrow Trail!
All Saints Church is hosting the trail which leads visitors around the public spaces in the area.
There will be plenty of ‘crows’ to take a peek at – with five local schools taking part in the scarecrow-building, so they deserve a mention too: Loughton First School, Loughton School, Holmwood School, Christ the Sower Ecumenical School and The Grove Independent School have all been making their own ‘takes’ on the field protectors.
We know that Wurzel would be proud as punch!
The Scarecrow Trail will roll through to Saturday, July 6, when presumably, participants will have had the last straw!
