Sixty scarecrows all in a row

A RANGE of characters featured in Sonning’s seventh biennial scarecrow trail held over the bank holiday weekend.

Thousands of visitors descended on the village on Sunday and Monday to view about 60 scarecrows made by residents and placed outside their homes.

The creations included Cruella de Vil and the 101 Dalmations, the Red Baron, Spiderman, Superman and Iron Man and characters from TV and children’s films.

Barbara Carr, of the Sonning village scarecrow and open gardens committee, said: “People work on them for several weeks beforehand and a considerable amount of thought goes into some of them.

“I’m quite impressed with the way visitors get behind it — they come from all over the place.
