from Hethersett have been busy making scarecrows in a special competition
organised by the Hethersett Environmental Action Team.
The picture shows Charleigh Starbrookpitts, of Hethersett Woodside Infant and Nursery School, one of two winners at that school receiving her prize of a decorated cake from Fran Young, Marketing Assistant at Waitrose, Wymondham, whose company donated cakes to the eight winners in the four schools taking part.
Other schools taking part were Hethersett Junior, Hethersett Old Hall School Junior Department and Little Melton Primary. In addition to the prizes, two framed certificates showing each winning drawing were presented to the schools as mementoes of the occasion. Mrs Revell, a teacher at Woodside, is shown holding one of the certificates, and also in the picture is Mrs Bea Ewart, who organised the competition, holding Charleigh's orignal drawing.
The other winners were: Ruby Crandell, Woodside; Alicia Drew and Ellamay Bouden-Dyke, Hethersett Junior; Amy Barker and Rebecca Starkie, Old Hall; together with Ezra Leverett and Finn Todd, Little Melton.
The eight winning scarecrow drawings will be used as posters to advertise Hethersett Open Gardens on Sunday 29th June, supporting, this year, the Caroline Lindley Trust and the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service.
