Ecchinswell Build-a-Beast parade tomorrow

BEASTLY things are stirring in Ecchinswell gardens, delighting villagers and passing motorists alike. 

The village Build-a-Beast competition has resulted in some 12 highly imaginative creations by adults, plus a further six by under 14's.

A mini-beast competition running alongside the main competition has also captured the imagination of pupils at Ecchinswell Primary School, attracting a further 24 entries - including from a four-year-old.

The village pub - The Royal Oak - has got in on the act, with a chuckle raising, giant beastie to be found outside the pub.

The winners will be revealed tomorrow (Saturday), following today's intense judging, and at the Ecchinswell and Sydmonton Primary School summer fair, from 1pm to 4pm in the school grounds.

There will also be games, a barbecue and more to be found at the school and pub, with the fair organised by the PTA to raise funds for the school's adventure playground. 

Watch out for the beasts 'rising up' from village gardens tomorrow (Saturday)  to make their way to the primary school for a grand parade.

For further coverage and photographs of the 'beasties' pic up a copy of next week's Newbury Weekly News and turn to the Hampshire pages.
