We Are the World BlogFest (#WATWB) celebrates special people and small stories of inspiration and hope in the world. Let’s face it, we need some inspiration and hope during this time of pandemic and social distancing.
This month I bring you a very cute story from the Middlewich Round Table. Our small community was feeling sad because we couldn’t host the usual children’s parties and pub entertainment that we would for Halloween. People started asking what we could do to cheer the children up and keep them occupied during the half-term holiday. Suddenly we started to see some strange characters around town…
The imaginative team at Middlewich Round Table put up scarecrows in strategic locations on residential streets, by the canal and in public spaces. We were delighted! We were also inspired, and now there are lots of scarecrows of all shapes and sizes popping up in people’s gardens. So far, my children and I have seen witches, ghosts, clowns, pirates, pumpkin scarecrows and even a snowman. I’m trying to persuade my youngest daughter to join the community spirit and help us to make a scarecrow for #MiddleWITCHfest but she is resisting because apparently, they are too scary. Hopefully, we will have one up for Halloween, but in the meantime, we have decorated our house with other fun stuff, including a door wreath and vampire doorbell, window stickers and spooky candles.
Happy Halloween, Middlewich. Happy Halloween, Everyone!
We are the World BlogFest (#WATWB) focuses on positive stories no matter where they’re found. It is all about spreading peace and humanity on social media. All participants post on the last Friday of the month, sharing a positive news story that contributes to making our world a happier, safer, and better place to live.
