A nursery manager has urged those who stole a scarecrow display made by four-year-olds for the Broughty Ferry Gala Week to return it.
The children had out a lot of “effort, imagination and hard work” to make the display, which was intended to form part of the scarecrow trail.
The scarecrow, made by kids from Balgillo Nursery on Langlea Road, was taken from its spot on the trail at Fisher Street.
Caroline McDiarmid said: “It’s really quite sad and immature.
“No thought or consideration has been given in to how much effort, imagination and hard work had been put in from my four-year-olds to create their scarecrow.
“They were all looking forward to looking for and finding their own scarecrow being displayed in the Ferry
“I know it’s only a scarecrow but I treat the children in my care as if they are all my own.
“I am a very hands-on manager and have spent the majority of this week outside with them, even battling against the weather, to create their scarecrow.
“They were so impressed at what they had achieved after collecting all their resources to create it. For it to be taken away, it’s just horrible.”
