An Utterly Good Man –The life of F. D. Maurice” , an academic
, Victorian vicar and author, who established colleges for
the education of both women and men, believed that capitalism
was rooted in greed and helped to give legal status to co-operative bodies such
as working men’s associations. He was a member of the Royal
Commission discussing the Acts of law which gave police the right
to arrest prostitutes, forcibly medically examine them and confine them
in a lock up hospital.
Maurice remained firmly and conscientiously opposed to the Acts to the very
last.” Close, Francis (1872).
We are excited to announce the winners of the 2019 Scarecrow Trail!
October 2019 was the 5th year of
the Frampton Cotterell Scarecrow Trail. This year, the chosen theme was
characters from the stories by Dick King-Smith. This echoed the decision of the
parish council to commemorate the famous author who lived and farmed in the
village for many years. Dick King-Smith immortalised many of the animals from
his farm and the surrounding countryside in his work.
The standard of the entries this year was very high, but the
following were voted the winners by the public:
Thank you to everyone that took part in the scarecrow trail this year, all of your entries were fantastic and we can’t wait to see your designs next time! If you have any theme ideas for the 2020 trail, feel free to send them over to us at email@example.com
On Wednesday 30th October 2019, residents of Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath were able to truly express and honour the memory of our distinguished historic celebrity, author Dick King-Smith. His daughter, Juliet King-Smith, kindly travelled to visit us and spent the whole day here, she had a very busy itinerary.
Throughout the morning, Juliet walked around the scarecrow trail and enjoyed seeing all the characters from her father’s book in scarecrow form. Juliet’s face lit up when she saw the scarecrows. She enjoyed her time so much being back in the village, she has said a few words summarising her day:
Juliet praised all the scarecrows that she viewed on Wednesday 30th October, saying, “Thanks for a terrific day on Wednesday. It was so nice to be in Coalpit Heath again. I loved the brilliantly-imaginative scarecrows…”
Juliet went on to reflect on the fun she had telling stories at the Manor Hall, “The gathering in the hall that used to be the primary school went very well, I thought, and it was nice to meet some locals and their kids and to read, ostensibly, to the children, but I noticed the parents and helpers seemed to enjoy listening in too.”
Thank you to everyone that took part in the scarecrow trail this year, all of your entries were fantastic and we can’t wait to see your designs next time! If you have any theme ideas for the 2020 trail, feel free to send them over to us firstname.lastname@example.org
