If you need a reminder, images of all the scarecrows are featured on Flickr here: https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjzU5RC

We're not sure why it has to be so complicated (!) but the quickest thing to do is simply scroll right down to the bottom of the message and click 'accept all'

The Haddenham Association of Scouts and Guides is delighted to welcome 75 official displays to this year's Trail, many of which have a Jubilee theme!

The List of official Entrants and Trail Map are available to view or download from this page – see attached PDFs .

In addition, paper maps will be available during opening hours from Blooming Fruity, the Cottage Bakery and Haddenham Garden Centre. Maps are also available at any time from outside 7 Dovecote, 70 Stanbridge Road and 4 Flint Street as well as Haddenham Fete on 11th June.


The organisers have politely request that folk kindly refrain from posting photos of scarecrows on local social media – at least not until the event is well into its second week. This gives residents and visitors the opportunity to see the creations for themselves and it encourages people to make a donation to Buckinghamshire Mind in return for a Trail Map or to donate online. If photos of scarecrows are posted on Facebook too soon, this impacts on fundraising.

A gallery containing photos of each official Scarecrow has now been published – see here


Donations for Buckinghamshire Mind are invited in any of the following ways:

1. Via the Justgiving page

2. By cheque made payable to Buckinghamshire Mind posted or delivered to 7 Dovecote HP17 8BP

3. By bank transfer: Lloyds Bank: Sort Code: 30-98-56; Account No: 29225168; Account Name: F J Flaxton; Reference: Scarecrow22

4. In cash to any of the venues selling maps

Everyone can vote for their three favourites by text or email up to the last day of the Festival – Sunday 19th June.

The three most popular displays will each receive a voucher for Afternoon Tea for Two, generously donated by Haddenham Garden Centre.

Enjoy the Trail!
