Thank the scarecrows

AFTER one of the most successful trails, the rewards of the Norland Scarecrow Festival are being reaped by schoolchildren.

More than £1,500 was handed over to the five members of the School Council at Norland Primary School.

The money has been bought a series of guided books, meaning pupils can read along together in group sessions.

Head teacher Samantha Dawson said that the children were looking forward to starting their latest big read.
