Kennington has been home to some imaginatively dressed visitors in the last few weeks. Over 20 scarecrows popped up in doorways from Vauxhall City Farm, St Anselm’s Church, Kennington Tandoori, all the way to the Durning Library.
The creations were part of a Scarecrow Trail put together by St Anselm’s Church as part of the annual Kennington Country Life Service at Harvest Time. Unable to hold the event on the same scale as recent years, St Anselm’s invited people to tour Kennington and vote for their favourite scarecrow.
The Kennington Bethlehem link entrant was made by Miranda Townsend and hoisted to prominence by Jon Davies. Highlights of the trail included an effigy of Dominic Cummings taking an eye test, two vicars outside the church and elegant callers to Kennington Tandoori and Sally White’s. Local businesses received a welcome boost as families completed the trail.
Hurley Pre-School won the vote and were presented with their trophy at the Harvest Service.
