Scary characters with something to crow about

27th July 2016

Photograph of Scary characters with something to crow about

WORZEL Gummidge would doubtless have dismissed it as the last straw...scarecrows deserting their field posts to show themselves off in town..

Goodness knows what Aunt Sally would have said. But surely she would have relented and allowed the bird scarers their moment in the limelight, seeing as it's all in a good cause - Wick Gala Week.

Particularly as the fun competition, one of the many events in the festival's packed programme, seems to have caught the imagination in the royal burgh with several gardens and business premises sporting their versions of the popular character..

If this selection is anything to go by, the judges will need their thinking heads on, to decide the winners.

We will look out for more to grab photos to add to the list. Feel free to send photos to bill@caithness.org to include in the gallery.
