Colourful characters on the scarecrow trail

Scarecrow Festival Wolverton
Scarecrow Festival Wolverton

YOU could be forgiven for thinking you had stumbled across a bizarre fairytale in Wolverton, starring a teddy bear’s picnic, a mermaid and Top Gear’s the Stig.

The eighth annual Wolverton Scarecrow Festival took place last weekend, with many residents in the town going all out and putting their efforts on display in their front gardens for all the enjoy as people explored the pedestrian route.

While many residents and groups took part in the festival, for those unfamiliar with expert scarecrow making techniques, there were workshops taking place in the Town Hall to show people the basics to encourage them to show off their efforts next year.

And there were also lots of stalls and activities for everyone to enjoy throughout the popular event.
