Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales in 2017

Well, that's it for another two years. The event has raised about £3,700.00 for All Saints' Church, before we take account of matched funding, donations in cash and kind and gift aid contributions. That is a really fantastic total, and it is all down to the sustained effort put in by the whole Loughton community. A special, warm 'thank you' to all the scarecrow builders, without whose efforts the Scarecrow Trail for certain could not take place. I hope you all derived as much pleasure from welcoming visitors to the trail as I did. We must have had about 2,000 visitors over the two weekends, and families were still going round the trail yesterday, after it had officially closed. On that happy and positive note, I'll say 'au revoir' until January 2017, at which point we hope to be back again as an organising committee, taking forward a third Loughton Scarecrow Trail with the theme Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales.
