Who stole the tramp’s head?

Last weekend the streets of Alresford were filled with many Scarecrows, in a competition organized by ‘Churches Together in Alresford’, and the sight of these figures by the roadside from the town boundaries and through the centre caused a lot of pleasure and amusement.

DSC01852abUnfortunately someone chose to steal the head from one handsome figure who was to be seen propping up the doorway beside the Naked Grape in West Street, obviously someone who had overdone the consumption of the grape juices, or hops. Maybe the person who stole the head on Friday night was equally intoxicated.

Come the morning light, maybe he, or his better half, might realize that this head was made with care from some family mementoes that are irreplaceable, so please see if it can be returned, or tell us where to find it.

All the Scarecrows gave a lot of people a lot of pleasure, so hopefully we can all look for any information that might counteract this sad aspect of the Community we live in….

This information was passed on from some concerned residents who were visiting the town, and apparently saw the incident, but whose position meant that they were unable to take any decisive action to apprehend those involved. They do not wish to give their names, to avoid any come back, but they sent a picture of themselves, via www.alresfordheritage.co.uk.
