Scarecrow splendour

Families had lots of fun following the annual scarecrow trail organised by the friends of Christ Church School over the weekend of June 8 and 9. Many people enjoyed guessing the names of the 29 scarecrows, which were all book characters. Eleven were made by the school and/or children while the others were made by parents, or local community groups such as Hanham Pre-school.  The event raised more than £600 for  the school. Organisers have thanked DW Smith for sponsoring the trail and funding the main prize of a family ticket to Bristol Zoo Project, as well as being grateful to all the shops along the high street who supported them by allowing scarecrows to be placed  in their shop windows.
