Scarecrows on Holiday 29th August - 12th September
Following the enormous success of our Duck Race Day in Bramhall Park in May which raised over £15,000 for our charities the Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club are holding an event in September centering on the village itself.
This will be a scarecrow festival with the theme SCARECROWS ON HOLIDAY and will run from 29th August
until 12th September.
The scarecrows' work in the fields and gardens is done for another year and they will be converging on Bramhall Village to begin their holiday fun.
There are three categories for entrants and judging will take place on Saturday 12th September at three venues around the village:
- Outside Barclays Bank for entries from local shops and offices,
- The Village Square for schools, clubs and children's organisations such as brownies, scouts etc.
- The forecourt of the Methodist church for family and individual entries.
You can get a creation kit for just £20 by contacting Maggie at or through the Club website or this Facebook page. All profits will go to our charities. After that you have free rein to dress your scarecrow ready to commence his or her chosen holiday activity. Props are allowed. Or you can make your own scarecrow and enter the competition for just £10.
Shops and businesses are being encouraged to display their scarecrows outside their premises for two weeks from 29th August for shoppers to enjoy and attract people to our lovely village centre. Who will be first to spot Billy Bow the Roving Rotary Scarecrow? Out and about every day!
There will also be music and dance throughout the village from 12 noon on the final Saturday.
