12th – 14th Septemberscarecrow colour logo from prue

Please start planning your scarecrow for the festival – it needs to go up before the 12th September.  If you need a theme we suggest Sport – think World Cup, Wimbledon, Tour de France or the Commonwealth Games ….

Events already confirmed for the weekend include a dog show, BBQ, an open church afternoon with brass band, pre dinner drinks, rock on the rec, sports on the rec, an open farm, open gardens and various garage sales, afternoon teas and stalls.  For some current details go to ‘READ MORE’ below.  We’ll be delivering a more complete “What’s On” sheet around beginning of September.

If you’d like to get involved and raise some money for your club or charity please get in touch with Alix Robinson (info@haslingfieldscarecrowfestival.org, 870167)

Sunday 14th September 11am – 4pm
“Down on the farm”……..

Weather permitting; we will be holding a small working event, featuring agricultural tractors, from the 1930’s through to the present day, at Lesanna Farm, Cantelupe Road, Haslingfield. There will also be refreshments, with a small play area for ‘tiny farmers’ to have some fun!

No admittance charge as such, just a collection box, where any donations will be gratefully accepted – we will be raising funds for the Arthur Rank Hospice Appeal.

For more information please contact Claire Woolford  660566

Saturday 13th September
All Saints Church Open Afternoon

Book Stall, Bric-aBrac Stall, Cakes and Produce, Tombola …..  Afternoon Teas will be served.  Contributions to stock the stalls would be most welcome and appreciated.  The Eversden Brass band will perform on the Glebe Meadow near the church during the afternoon.

    Good morning.
    The best of luck with the festival, and weather suited to the occasion.
    After the visit of ‘le Tour de France’ its inclusion as a theme is praiseworthy.
    Is there perhaps an opportunity to link this with the suggested visit, by the
    Little Rose’s champions, to play pétanque here in Gaillac where I live.
    They will be made most welcome. A return on home ground to follow.
    A pleasing link to where I was born and spent over 50 years.
    Information has been sent to the parish clerk for circulation.
    With best wishes,
    Neville James Cole
