SCARECROW VILLAGE FESTIVAL IN HORDLE, HAMPSHIRE.<br />
<br />

Entries this year to a village scarecrow competition seem to have taken a Covid-19 theme, with entries showing Dominic Cummings holding a steering wheel next to an eye chart, key workers stood 2 metres apart and politicians stood at lecterns.<br />
<br />
The pandemic appears to have also played a part in the number of entries this year which is down from twenty last year to eight, but families and businesses have still produced a range of scarecrows for the competition.<br />
<br />
The competition this year is raising money for PATCH - Parents and Teachers in the Community of Hordle, and is organised by the Hordle and District Twinning Association.<br />
