Barbara Carr, one of the organisers of the forthcoming

Thank you so much to all those who are opening their gardens,

have offered to help, and to all who have registered Scarecrows

— we have a great variety!

There is still time to enter a Scarecrow so get on the phone

or e-mail me now! We have room for more Scarecrows from

individuals and from organisations. The last date to register

is Friday 20 May. If you are not registered your scarecrow will

will not be on the Trail Map that thousands of visitors will be

following on Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June from 10am

to 5pm. Coinciding with the trail, Sonning Art Group will be

staging an exhibition of their work in Pearson Hall, so don't

forget to call in there on your way round.

Please also phone or email if you can offer to help during the

two days by making cakes, serving refreshments, manning one

of the gardens that will open for visitors, or selling trail maps.

If you have a place on the route for a Scarecrow let me know

as we need display areas from Sonning Bridge up Thames Street,

village end of Charvil Lane, High Street, Pearson Road, Pound

Lane down to Ligugé Way, and Sonning Lane up to Berkshire
