SCARECROW FESTIVAL (by Pam Murgatroyd)

 If you've never made a scarecrow,

Then come to the workshop and see

How easy it is to make your own

And the session in April is free.


It takes place from seven til nine

On April the fifth in the hall,

And everyone will be welcome,

Even if you know nothing at all.


Spring Bank hols is the 7th May,

When the scarecrows are out in the street

Or sit in shop windows or gardens too,

There are dozens or more, it's a treat.


Refreshments for sale in the church hall

Or if, by chance, there's some sun,

There's a hog roast and bar near the doctor's,

With stalls & bands having fun.


If you want to join in with this great day,

Book a stall or a scarecrow to show,

Just go on the website and fill in the form,

You might really like it, you know.




If you go into 'Scarecrow Festival', you can fill in the form online and then email it to


You will also be able to see photos from previous Scarecrow festivals.
