Scarecrow Festival

Thank you everyone who took part in the 2018 Scarecrow Festival.

“A huge thank you to all the scarecrow makers, your creations were as wonderful as ever. To the bakers, bbq staff, Nigel for his delicious burgers, to the tea and cake and programme sellers and to all at The Coopers for their hospitality. Thanks also to everyone who helped clear away after the event and to everyone who supported the 3 days. Looking forward to next year already. Hannah has started her 2019 spreadsheet! Would you believe we already have entries coming in. That really is forward planning. Next years theme Hollywood Walk of Fame. Finally there is one young star that has worked her socks off for this event again this year. To Hannah I must give huge praise for working so hard all over the summer putting this all together. Without her drive and support this wonderful event would not have been possible. She is an absolute star xx”
