PUPILS at Reed First School have been crowing about their success in a competition.

The children entered a Scarecrow and Scarespoon contest organised by Friends of Reed School to coincide with the harvest festival.

After the winners were announced, all the Scarecrows and Spoons went on display in the village church.

Headteacher Alison Thomas said: "The children thoroughly enjoyed making their Scarespoons and Scarecrows, and taking part in the harvest festival service.

"It's so important to remind children where their food comes from and how reliant we are on the farmers and the weather for our food and nourishment."

First prize winner of the Scarecrow category was Poppy Smith with "Farmer Hoggett", while second prize was awarded to Edward and Rosie Kershaw, and third to Clara Schonberger.

Scarespoon winners were Elizabeth Page with "Scare Mermaid", Jessica Turner with "Hula Loola", Reece Dela Nougerede with "Farmer Giles" and Mia-Rose Yates with "Cereal Queen".

The Rev Sarah Hillman, from St Mary's Church, said: "The church has a close relationship with the staff and pupils at Reed.

"It was lovely to have the children taking part in our harvest service and enjoying a traditional harvest.
