There has been an overwhelming response to Haddenham's first Scarecrow Festival, which was launched at the village Fete. Almost 50 individuals, clubs, societies, community groups, schools and local businesses have entered scarecrows into the Festival and several extras have appeared around the village this week!

Haddenham residents definitely have great imagination and a wonderful sense of humour — they have used gardens, tennis courts, streams, car parks, walls, hedges, chairs and even house roofs to display their scarecrows! Well done to everyone who has taken part and thank you for your generous donations so far to the Florence Nightingale Hospice charity.

You can follow the Haddenham Scarecrow Festival Trail to see these fantastic creations between now and 26th June. Get yourself a Trail map to make sure you don't miss anything, in return for a £1 donation to the above charity. Trail maps are available from the following locations:

  • Blooming Fruity
  • Egg House Butchery
  • Jenny Bullimore at 4 White Cross Road, part of the Bucks Open Studios
  • The Haddenham Florence Nightingale shop, open Thursday-Saturday

In addition to bringing the community together and giving passers by a laugh, it is hoped that this event will raise over £300 for a very worthy cause. Watch this space for the final total and any updates.

Featured above are just a few of the humourous and ingenious scarecrows currently appearing around the village. A few more are featured in our GALLERIES section. But it's much more fun to walk round Haddenham and spot them in situ.

Have fun Scarecrow spotting!
