Ours was Hangman's corner (a recycled effort from Halloween)
Our neighbours did a joint effort, a fantastic pirates galleon called the 'Black Bobby' after Bob, one of our neighbours. His wife mistakenly painted 'The Black Booby' on the galleon and they had to change it!! They had three pirate scarecrows, a palm tree, coconuts, a treasure chest and loads of wanted posters up. They won first prize, and rightly so.

Hooray, it's Summer at the big house!!
As you can see our road had a great time, and we all really enjoyed getting involved. It really brings everyone together and creates such a lovely atmosphere. There is talk of the Apollo moon landings next year!!! The gauntlet has been thrown down, watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!
Our cottage complete with vintage Union jack flag and vintage bunting ready for the Gala. It was a lovely day and the weather was fabulous.
