Bus driver David Sheritt could ‘bear’ly believe his eyes this week when Paddington  jumped aboard at Ellenabeich.

The world-famous bear, complete with red wellies and marmalade sandwich,  is just one of 45 straw-stuffed characters signed up so far for Seil’s first Scarecrow Festival starting on Saturday July 27.

West Coast Motors will be changing the name of its Easdale service to officially become the Scarecrow Bus during the week-long festival and Paddington wanted to be its first passenger.

Organisers are hoping the Scarecrow Bus will encourage even more daytrippers, especially those without their own wheels, to come and join in the festival fun.
