Setting up for the Third Heacham Scarecrow Festival took place in the rain.  Everyone hoped it would brighten up later.  Sadly to say it got worse!

In spite of the downpour (no exaggeration), the stage was set, the Deputy Mayor opened proceedings and judged the nineteen groups and individuals who entered their scarecrows into the competition.  Once judging was completed, the gates were opened and wow!  Even in the rain the visitors came.  Very impressive.  The Lynn News reporter had the best umbrella (it blew to bits!).

The Heacham Scarecrow Festival will be back next year, hopefully in better weather!

Visitors enjoyed themselves as best they could.  The Scarecrows were very well done by everyone and provided some laughter and talking points.

There was plenty of tea and cake and there were ice creams if required.  Stalls consisted of plants, local photographs by Heacham Digital Camera Club, Jamestown by Parish Council, cards, two tombolas, a lucky dip and a lucky lollypop dip.
