Alongside the Frampton Scarecrow Competition.
we are very grateful to those gardeners in Frampton, who for one afternoon each
year open their gardens to the Public.
We are likewise very grateful to our W.I. and Susan and Mathew Grist, who provide very
welcome refreshments for our visitors, and Penny and Roger Winfield who offer
plants for sale.
We know how
much hard work goes into this, and some years if the weather is too dry or too
wet, it becomes very much a labour of love.
This year was no exception.
This year we
had the additional benefit of being able to share our day with a number of very
strange folk. I refer of course to some
27 scarecrows dotted around the village.
Organised by the Frampton Village Society, the
response this year was excellent. Some
very creative examples were displayed and they did not have to be in a ‘Hidden
Garden’. Prompted by the displays, many visitors were observed walking around
with grins on their faces.
