    The village came together to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Saturday, 8th May 2020. The judges were very impressed with the wit, creativity, quality and quantity of entries to the competition. They particularly enjoyed the live scarecrows! It was hard to select winners but, after much deliberation over a celebratory glass of wine, they chose the following:
     
    Winner of the first prize, a hamper: the Women's Land Army representative in Lymbrook Close by Emma Shorter and her family.
     
    Close second, for a bottle of wine (or Spitfire beer?): the witty sailor outside Lymbrook Cottages by Anne and Russell Cherry.
     
    Well done everybody!
    The Judges


    I would like to add how wonderful the response was from everybody within the village.  A real success and it certainly bought a smile to my face.  Thank you so much whether you made, or appeared as, a scarecrow or wandered round the village looking at them.

    The webmaster would like to thank all the other villagers who kindly submitted photos, all of which were fantastic! There were so many that the brutal choice was made to display only Guy's as he was appointed as the "official" photographer for the event. The webmaster apologises for any disappointment caused both to the other photographers and anyone who may have been hoping to see their photos.
