The Haddenham Association of Scouts and Guides is challenging the village community to create a whole family of Scarecrows this summer to amuse and delight passers-by! Scarecrows will be on display throughout the village from Saturday 11th June, during the Bucks Open Studios fortnight until Sunday 26th June.

Anyone can create a Scarecrow: children, adults, families, schools, local shops, businesses, community groups, clubs and organisations. Most of the Haddenham Scouting and Guiding units will be taking part and they hope that lots of other local individuals and organisations will get creative and join them.

All you have to do is to register your interest and request an entry form by contacting the Scarecrow Festival organisers. Please Email:

scarecrowhaddenham.festival@gmail.com.

Completed entry forms should be returned by 4th June, together with an optional voluntary contribution to be donated to the Florence Nightingale Hospice charity. The closing date for entries is Saturday 4th June, to allow enough time to collate details and prepare the Scarecrow Trail maps. There are very few rules about your Scarecrow design ..... it can be any shape or size and made of any materials, but we would like to see a happy smiling face on each one please! Entrants must be able and willing to display it outside your premises between 11th and 26th June inclusive.

The Scarecrow Festival will be launched at Haddenham Fete on 11th June, where Scarecrow Trail maps will be available from the Scout and Guide Association's stall, in return for a £1 donation towards the Florence Nightingale Hospice charity. It is hoped to make Scarecrow Trail maps available from other locations in the village from 11th June (see local publicity for more details).

For more details or to register your interest, please contact the Haddenham Association of Scouts and Guides c/o scarecrowhaddenham.festival@gmail.com
