Christmas Scarecrows

This is a message for all you creative people out there. We have a challenge for you this December! In these lockdown times it’s clear that Christmas is going to be a little different this year, and we thought we might be able to bring the community together and get into the Christmas spirit if we all share in a creative activity.
So, we want you to make a Christmas Scarecrow – dressed as one of the characters in a traditional Nativity. It could be Mary or Joseph or Baby Jesus, or a shepherd, or a king, or an angel, or a sheep, or a donkey, or a cow or a star – the choice is up to you!
When your scarecrow is ready put it on display outside your house. As we get nearer and nearer to Christmas, more and more scarecrows will pop up around the village.
On Christmas Eve at 4pm we will have our traditional Crib Service at Edington Priory Church. But because we can’t all get into the church we will be holding it outside the church. And we want you to bring your scarecrow with you so that we can make a crib scene in the churchyard with all the scarecrows!
Our lives may be restricted in various ways, but we can still have fun as a community this Christmas.
