Children and parents from a Winchester village joined together for an afternoon of scarecrow themed festivities, as Colden Common Pre-School ran their annual event.
The event raises fund for the continued development of the committee-run pre-school, engaging with the village and surrounding areas to involve those from outside the pre-school community – this year even saw two families travel from Portsmouth.
Families that attend purchase a trail map which is needed to locate all ten scarecrows hidden across Colden Common. Finding each scarecrow will unlock a part of an anagram which be used on return to Colden Common Community Centre to claim a prize.
Alongside the trail, the day also saw craft competitions judged by the local MP, Steve Brine, who said; “Times are tough for many early years settings so it was great to visit Colden Common and have some fun with the team. There were some cracking entries and many looked like Boris Johnson!”
