20240706 091718 Netherton Scarecrow Festival Zippy 01

Horbury and Ossett Phoenix Rotary members David Maynard and Bill Sutton placing the Phoenix scarecrow entry "Zippy" at the Netherton Scarecrow Festival 2024.

"Zippy" is a traditional scarecrow based on a wooden cross made of eco-friendly coppiced Hazel. The clothes and cap will likely be washed and worn again and the stuffing is hay. The base is a trailer spare tyre with a wheel bearing which allows Zippy to turn around in the wind!
Thanks to Stuart Wilby for his engineering skills, David Maynard for his "make do and mend/recycling" skills and to other members who stuffed "Zippy" and generally helped/hindered.
