In the days leading up to the weekend of Sept. 26/27, scarecrows appeared  at all manner of locations around the village. Not a supernatural invasion, but a prelude to the Visual & Performing Arts Festival. A herculean effort by Patti and Paul Quant, the festival started with a judging of scarecrows by the Mayor and Mayoress of Ely and included an exhibition of the paintings of Neville Cripps, displays of photographic and other visual arts and crafts, medieval music and Playford dancing. As well as providing great entertainment, the event raised funds for the charity 'Second Sight' and the local archive group.
