The town’s annual downtown Andover Coalition for Education (ACE) Scarecrow Festival is reaching out to neighborhoods this year and one pretty cul-de-sac in the Bancroft School district will be decorated in festive scarecrow style.
Coventry Lane, located off Salem Street, clearly has the Halloween spirit and will share it for a good cause.
“On Coventry Lane, we have 25 children ages 14 and under,” said Sara Wells, who lives there and is serving as the coordinator of her neighborhood’s scarecrow project. “We often do things as a neighborhood to help in Andover and we look forward to doing this.”
A recent neighborhood pizza party mapped out the scarecrow assembly plans and Wells said the scarecrows will be up soon. The neighborhood plans to display 13 scarecrows in support of ACE and Andover schools.
