Scarecrow Weekend

June 30th/July 1st 2018

Every other summer there is tinkering going on in garages and sheds throughout the village as everyone gears up for this extremely popular annual event. Competition and rivalry for the top spot?......of course there is!

Scarecrow Weekend 2016 was a raging success with dozens of visitors coming to our village as in previous years to see all the hard work and marvel at the efforts put in by our more artistic residents.

With 2018 rapidly approaching, our sights are now firmly set on making the 2018 event at the end of June even better than before. The theme for this year has been announced as "Around The World". Make sure to keep your eyes open for more information as it becomes available!
