Scarecrow thieves steal Brian the Mower Man from festival display

ORGANISERS  of Halsall Scarecrows festival are calling on thieves who stole one of the exhibits to ‘hand it back!’

‘Brian the Mower Man’ was taken from outside Halsall School earlier this month and driven away in a white Mercedes.

Bizarrely, the mower alongside Brian was left in its place.

A spokesperson for the festival pleaded: “We want Mower Man back! Continued. inside

“Please look out for him and let us know where we can pick him up.”

Despite the theft, the festival is still on track and residents can come and join in the fun on Father’s Day Weekend, Saturday 19 and Sunday, June 20 from 1pm to 4pm and take part in the Scarecrow Trail.

People can walk the short trail around the village centre to spot the owls hidden among the Scarecrows and find answers to some simple questions and vote for their favourite Scarecrow.

The £4 entry forms can be bought on the day from the stall opposite the War Memorial. Forms can be bought back to the stall to be entered into a draw with a chance to win one of the prizes donated by local businesses including a voucher to spend at the Village Bakery, the Saracens Head or Keli’s Deli at Gregory Garage.

People can also ‘Name the Scarecrow’ for a chance to win a family day pass to Farmer Teds in Haskayne.

All money raised is for the Halsall Proud & Tidy Group.
