Littlethorpe Life October 2023

Scarecrow Festival

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Scarecrow Festival in September, whether you made a scarecrow, enjoyed a cream tea or a cake, had a go on the games or bought a raffle ticket. It made for a very successful event. Thanks too to those who helped on the day or donated cakes, and also to the local businesses and residents that donated raffle prizes – your contributions are very much appreciated!
