Silent Sunday (2) …. A Bit Scary at Church this morning


It is the annual Village Scarecrow Weekend.  At the Church a Scarecrow Wedding is taking place.

The Groom looks rather pleased with himself whilst the Bride does look a little concerned !

As for the Minister and Verge, I think they are relieved that the service is over and certainly one guest is rather dis-interested (or perhaps thinking “rather him than me”


Just 5 of over 45 Scarecrows around the villages today.

Don’t be scared but please remember to

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. The church was not the instigator of the event, just a contestant participating in this fairly new village tradition…. its fun and helping to create a community spirit. As for the priest… that was a photo face mask. 🤣


      1. I could not quite resist a comment, Dave! 🙂
        Not with the times we live in!
        Perhaps Boris ought to check how this trick would work with ‘truckers’?


        1. Boris..who is he?… Oh!, he is the one who thinks he is a real Prime Minister. He is also more like a scarecrow than a Scarecrow.. At least a real Scarecrow has a useful purpose. 🙂
