What a day!  The weather could not have been better, it was a balmy summer day and the sun was shining.  28 homes had produced a marvellous selection of scarecrow characters that made waking around the village of Paull a delight, some were funny, some serious but all were beautifully produced. If you would like to see a selection please go to the gallery section.

The new Paull Village Hall where organisation had taken place, was decked-out in all its glory with bunting and flags. Inside there were stalls of hot-dogs, refreshments, tombola, cakes, face painting, books, toys and children’s  games etc (the adults enjoyed them too). Everyone had a great time.
