The residents of Bishops Nympton have been creating ‘corona crows’ to scare off the virus.

The parish council invited everyone to make good use of lockdown and enter the May scarecrow competition.

Chairman Ian Cowling said: “It was just a bit of fun to take our minds off the pandemic and the restrictions.

“We were amazed to have 58 entries in total; every morning more corona crows appeared as if by magic.

“It was very difficult to judge the winners, so we left that task to our vicar and his wife – no room for argument there then! Finally Alastair and Alison Forman decided on the top three.

During lockdown residents have pulled together to help those advised not to travel. The village shop and post office has continued to operate successfully with ‘social distancing’ measures.

Friends and neighbours have helped each other, so much so that a helpline scheme for those with no friends or neighbours has received very few calls - with more volunteers registered than requests for help.
