Carshalton Straw Jack, 2021

Straw Jack, progressed around Carshalton, in the London Borough of Sutton, again on the afternoon of Saturday 4 September 2021.

Although at one time Jack was burnt at the end of the day, in 2021 he was not burnt due to concerns about space and insurance, but rather unceremoniously left outside his last calling place, The Hope pub.

Correction:  Apparently ‘part’ of the Straw Jack was burnt late in the evening.

For further information see the report of the 2017 event on this website.
