In most villages there are weekends in the diary that involve the whole community. In Sonning, the weekend biennial festival featuring a scarecrow trail with many well-loved characters spread around the village has become a popular event. Families are invited to see how many they can spot as they follow the trail and then vote for their favourite. Many village gardens are open to the public and the money raised goes to local good causes.
Here are some photos taken two years ago together with some of the church and churchyard that I took on our recent visit.
|The beautifully-built, new church meeting room incorporates an older building.|
The footpath next to it leads down to the river.
|St. Andrew's Church dates back to Saxon times with later additions.|
I hope you enjoyed an impression in photos of this endearing aspect of life in this Berkshire village.
