A Saturday off work so I decided to visit to The Chestnut Centre a small wildlife park that specialises in Otters and Owls but also takes in injured and abandoned wildlife.
The round trip would be about 70 miles but I was soon distracted just a few miles from home.

As I drove through the local villages of Plumley and Lower Peover (pronounced "peever")
I enjoyed one of those wonderful serendipity moments.....
.....a Scarecrow Festival.
There is a Best Kept Village competition and this was the theme taken up by Lower Peovers residents.
|The grass was getting vacuumed.....|
.....and the trees were being dusted.....
.....the village sign gets a polish.....
|.....and even William and Kate made a visit|
The people of Lower Peover had also opened up their gardens to the public.
|These were a bit scary...the one in front was swinging to and fro.....|
..... took me a moment to realise she was on a swing.
As I left the I was delighted to see a scarecrow in a field delivering an Ice Cream to a mechanic.
A great community effort... well done Lower Peover.
The post about the Otters will have to wait until tomorrow.
