Scarecrows get the vote!


A SUGGESTION that parish councillors in Stockton Heath should turn up dressed as scarecrows has been made after more people turned out to vote for the village festival’s scarecrow competition than in the local elections!
Members were discussing the successful Stockton Heath Festival, when Cllr Tudor Pole reported that more than 3,000 people had voted in the scarecrow competition.
Many of the village shops and businesses entered in the fun with scarecrows (pictured left) based on their staff, icons such as Lady Gaga and “Reservoir Cods” (a take on the film Reservoir Dogs) with fish scarecrows on deckchairs outside the chip shop on London Road.
Several members commented that more people voted in the competition than vote in some parish council wards.
Acting chairman Cllr Stephen Taylor (pictured right) quipped “maybe we should all come dressed as scarecrows.”
