Haddenham Scarecrows

Scarecrow Festival 51

The Haddenham Scarecrow Festival began last weekend, and continues for just one more week — the scarecrows will disappear from their poles and perches on Sunday 25th June.

So get a move on! Following the trail of scarecrows provides a lovely walk around Haddenham and seeing them in their village context is great fun. Some are quite tricky to spot though — and this provides a great game for parents and grandparents, challenging their children and grandchildren to see the scarecrows before they do!

Lots of effort, creativity and humour have gone into this year's collection.

A list of all the entries and a Trail Map is available from Blooming Fruity, the Community Library and Haddenham Garden Centre. The cost of the the Trail Map is just £1.00 — and this donation goes to 'Heads Together' which aims to change the national conversation on mental health and wellbeing, and is a partnership of charities with decades of experience in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges.

Optional donations are also invited, which will be shared equally between the Haddenham Scout & Guide Association (Charity No.270223) and Heads Together (Charity No.1119499).
