You can tell it's the end of the summer when the Bisterne Scarecrow Festival takes place and this year it has twenty seven entries. Much like the Go-Kart race that happens in Ringwood this event divides between those who are having a laugh and doing it simply to raise money for the local Village Hall and those who see it as an artistic challenge. I think this year there were a far higher number of entries who had put quite a lot of effort into it than normal.
This was my personal favourite, "How many men does it take to change a light bulb?" If you look just above the seated ladies head you can see the feet of one poor chap who has fallen into the hedge.
