The population of Wilmslow increased by about 80 for a week in the summer as the town held its first scarecrow festival. Straw figures of all shapesand sizes appeared around the town centre to the amusement, and occasionally bafflement, of shoppers. Scarecrows went up in and outside shops along Water Lane and the event, which was organised by members of the Rotary Club of Wilmslow Dean and the Wilmslow Business Group, has already been pencilled in for a return next year.
