Mutford held a very successful Scarecrow Hunt at the weekend (7th and 8th July 2018) to celebrate the Village Hall being open for 50 years.
There were 54 scarecrows to be found by walking around the village following clues.
Inside the hall there were refreshments, tombola, a craft area for children to make mini scarecrows and enter them into a competition if they wished, an archive exhibition and a film show of some the past events enjoyed in the hall.
Outside on the playing field were craft stalls, a bouncy castle, vintage cars and tractors.
The event was very successful with 140 entry forms sold, which probably meant that about 500 people attended the event over the two days. All the activities contributed to the £1300 raised for the village hall.
The event was brought to a close by the cutting of a cake to mark the occasion of the opening of the hall in 1968 by Sir Stanley Rouse a former President of FIFA and Mutford resident.
