Drizzle doesn’t deter scarecrow fans

On Saturday 8th September, hundreds of visitors walked round the centre of Baildon, on a drizzly wet day, looking at scarecrows on a theme of Literary Characters. Most children recognised Charlie who stood by a Fairtrade Chocolate Factory, replete with tall mill chimney. They, and their families, were offered Divine Fairtrade Chocolate samples, which were very well received. In all, 520 chocolates were handed out, mainly to the children, suggesting a figure of around 800 visitors who interacted with members of Baildon Fairtrade Group who braved the weather to introduce Charlie.
