Stepping Stones’ Scarecrow – children enter local competition

Some of you may know that Gaarfields Children Centre in Brora and Brora Playgroup recently merged and their new name is Sutherland Stepping Stones Childcare Centre.

As a nice wee project for their first week as Sutherland Stepping Stones the children have been making a scarecrow for the brand new Brora Scarecrow Festival. She is called Flora and is a Highland Dancer.

Scarecrows having been popping up all over the village so the children have been talking about them. On Tuesday we walked round so the children could take photographs of them. We also learned the ‘dingle dangle scarecrow’ song.

Today the parents have been invited in to view our photography display. The scarecrows have also made the BBC news and our local paper!

A competition to find the best of the scarecrows will be judged this Saturday – we’ll let you know who wins!
