Scarecrow comp a hit with Kindy kids

BIGGENDEN and district Kindergarten children have been busy in recent weeks preparing their entry for the upcoming Biggenden Apex Rose Festival scarecrow competition.

When asked why they wanted to make a bride scarecrow, the answer was simple.

"We wanted a pretty scarecrow and a bride is pretty,” the youngsters said.

Organiser of the October 20 event, Belinda Hawes, said she had been informed there are around 10 scarecrows in the works.

"The scarecrow needs to be free-standing so they can be displayed down the main street in the rose gardens on festival day,” she said.

"They will add to the atmosphere of the day.”

She is calling on individuals, community groups, businesses and schools to create a scarecrow and be part of this activity.

"Just bring them along on festival day on Saturday, October 20 at noon to the information centre at the entrance to the former railway yards,” Ms Hawes said.

For further information phone Belinda Hawes on 0400179279.
