WHALTON First School’s eye-catching creation has both brains and a heart.
Students and staff put together an entry made out of tins for the scarecrow competition at the Village Show and their ‘tin man’ called Rusty took first prize.
The pupils did much more for the event, including lots of entries for the children’s classes, art work for an exhibition and decorations.
Headteacher Sue Hall said: “The children worked very hard all week on things for the show and their entries for the classes were of a very good standard. We used a combination of tins from school and those brought in from home and the tin man was an impressive size once we had finished.
“It was a great effort and everyone involved fully deserved to be category winners. They really enjoyed being part of a major community event.
“Some pupils and their parents also helped out with the little stalls we ran on the playground during the show, which raised £600 for the school.”
