HUNDREDS of people have been out spotting teddy bears and scarecrows as part of a popular charity weekend.

Barton under Needwood once again brought the sun to the village for families to enjoy the many scarecrows that were on display, as well as its popular teddy bear race and the all-important 15 open gardens.

A spokesman for Barton Open Gardens praised its volunteers and visitors, saying: “Listening to the preparations for Wimbledon I saw similarities to the festival, just that ours is on a smaller scale and run by volunteers.

“Thank you so much for your joyous goofing, hard work and astonishing ingenuity when things go wrong.

“With eight teddy “rides” and a passport office, all the exhibitions and demonstrations and the wonderful gardeners who open up, there are probably almost 200 people involved.”
