A spook-tacular Halloween effort from JET AW&D Hammonds
You wouldn’t normally expect to see scarecrows when filling up at your local forecourt, but that’s exactly what customers of JET AW&D Hammonds were confronted with earlier this week when the forecourt took part in the eighth annual Halesworth Scarecrow Festival.
A big team of 25 volunteers from across Hammonds Group got into the Halloween spirit by transforming an old 4×4 that was due to be scrapped into a spook-tacular Ford Model T pick up-inspired recovery vehicle, complete with six scarecrows dressed in their overalls ready to rescue any drivers in distress!
The JET forecourt was one of an estimated 75 local businesses taking part in the annual family festival, which raises funds for the town’s Christmas lights display. Colourful scarecrows of all shapes and sizes filled the streets and windows of the market town.
Louise Hammond, manager of Hammonds, comments: “Location-wise we’re on the main road going into the town so in a prime spot to grab people’s attention with our scarecrow truck. We try to get involved in our local community at every opportunity as it’s great to give something back to our loyal customers and businesses. This was the first year we’ve taken part in the Scarecrow Festival, but I’m sure it won’t be our last!”
