The long awaited Pattingham Scarecrow Festival is back this weekend and it’s bigger than ever. 130 scarecrows are scattered around the village and to help you find them all a dedicated map and guide, sponsored by Berriman Eaton, is £2 per person, FREE to children under 16 years old, and can be collected from St Chad’s village hall.
The festival is on all weekend from Friday to Sunday and along with the scarecrow trail, highlights include a harvest supper with talk from Pattingham born and bred Rob Colin-Stokes who now works for the Forestry Commission; a Folk and Fun night with live band and hog roast supper and a Harvest Song of Praise Church service which will see the new glass doors – funded by previous scarecrow festivals – dedicated to the community.
So come along and visit the pretty Staffordshire village of Pattingham and find the scarecrows – and keep a special eye out for the Berriman Eaton racing scarecrow with its balloon bridge. We’re rather proud of it even if we do say so ourselves!
