Many thanks to the local businesses who displayed scarecrows to win the Warsash Festival Cup 2008.  The amazing scarecrows celebrated the life of so many local firms to whom we are grateful.  The standard was so high that special certificates of merit and appreciation were awarded as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  The Cup was awarded do Deli Adriano with FE Chase & Son Ltd Builders and HJ Everett Chemist running a close 2nd and 3rd place.
