Congratulations to our top ten winners! Thanks to all our scarecrow builders who spent hours building your brilliant creations to entertain our visitors. We hope that you enjoyed creating them.
The festival takes a huge amount of planning and preparation from the whole of Flamstead village, and we hugely appreciate your efforts and support. A huge thanks to all those in the village who kindly volunteered their time over the weekend. Huge thanks also to our local businesses for their efforts as they also worked really hard to support the festival and its visitors.
Thanks also to our visitors for attending. We hope that you enjoyed your visit!
The AGM for the 17th Annual Flamstead Scarecrow Festival was held on the 9th October at St Leonard’s Church, where we celebrated our Scarecrow Festival Winners, reviewed the running of the festival this year, and relayed plans for the running of the event in 2019.
Including Gift Aid, the 2018 Scarecrow Festival raised around £23,000, which is all going toward the church transformation project. We are very pleased that such a fantastic amount was raised!
Our sincere thanks go to each and every person who made the 2018 Scarecrow Festival possible and who was involved in making the event such a great success!
We are now in the planning for 2019. Keep up to date with our news for the 2019 festival via the website.
