SCARECROW FESTIVAL AROUND COVEN
Judging weekend Friday 24th September to Sunday 26th September
“Entries are now closed for our Scarecrow Festival. We have 64 scarecrows around the village currently under construction. Judging is next Friday (24th) and Saturday (25th) so I imagine most people will want to have got their scarecrow up on display by the evening of Thursday 23rd. Maps (£2 each) of where the Scarecrows are located will be on sale in St Paul’s Church from tomorrow morning, and in the Co-Op, Veg Barn, Aston’s Butchers and C. A. Floral Designs from Monday. Parents of children attending St Paul’s First School will be able to buy maps from 8.30 am outside the school front door- remember to bring change with you. It will be a lovely family and community event to walk around next weekend. Please support. Lots of collection boxes in local shops and outside the church to put your donations in. Cakes and maps will be on sale outside the church on Saturday 25th Sept between 10.30 and 12 noon and on Sunday 26th outside 15 Church Lane (honesty box).” Together with a copy of the scarecrow festival poster.
