Holwell Scarecrow Festival

Holwell Scarecrow Festival

Posted: Mon, 03 Jun 2019 18:05 by Ken Jordan

Once again, we'd love you to join our village Scarecrow Festival! It's getting bigger and better every year. All you have to do is make and display a scarecrow on Saturday the 6th and Sunday the 7th of July. There's no entry fee, just let your imagination run riot! If you're new at this scarecrow building game, don't be "scared", why not join up with a neighbour to build one? Tell us you're doing it, by phoning Nigel on 01462 712874, calling in, or dropping a note at 1 Pirton Road, Holwell, or emailing scarecrow@eaton.me.uk and we'll give you an entry number to display. Visitors will make a donation to vote for their favourite and there will be prizes for the most popular.
Again, every penny we raise will go to Garden House Hospice, and we're sure it will be a fun weekend!
