A group of Stithians WI members created Rosie the Scarecrow for the village’s Scarecrow Festival organised jointly by the Parish Council and Stithians Show.
Forty or so scarecrows popped up around the village and whilst Stithians WI’s entry did not win, Rosie certainly attracted a lot of attention and many stopped to read the advertising about the WI. An opportunity to promote the WI was not wasted and enquiries are now being received.
Rosie is now settled in her new home on a local farm, where she is irritating the crows!
It was a busy fortnight for members as the Festival was followed by Stithian WI’s first get-together in a long time for a picnic at the Cricket Club and then informal coffee up at The Lake.
