Oving Scarecrow Day

Celebrating Our Community


Oving Scarecrows is all about community – do have a look at the About page where we explain our aims and ethos.

Each year Oving Scarecrows mounts a celebratory family focused event which reaches into our whole community. In 2019 the date for your diary is 11th May

We are able to deliver such a great value day out largely because of our fabulous and loyal sponsors, so do check out our Thanks to... page and see just how lucky we are to have such brilliant community-spirited businesses in our area. And it's worth adding that, because the day is an entirely not-for-profit event, we rely entirely on the community support of the whole village to make the day a success. Please see our Support page for more on this.

We are always looking for volunteers to help out on the day itself as well as helping out with the preparations. We are a friendly bunch and all us volunteers have a great time and we gain that glow one gets from knowing you are doing something really worthwhile. If you want to help us in any way, please let us know through the form on the Contact page. 

If you would like us to update you on anything about our events, please use the form on the Contact page to let us know – just put Newsletter in the heading along with your email address. We promise we won’t bombard your inbox and we will never use your email address for any other purpose.


Below is a copy of last year's map to give you an idea of the layout of the village and the kinds of activities you can expect.  Please notice that parking is NOT at the Village Hall but further south on Oving Road in a field which will be well sign-posted.  

The scarecrows are placed all round our small village in people’s gardens and around the Church which has scarecrows   outside it that have been made mostly by various youth groups. Disabled access is along a slightly sloping path and there is a ramp into the Church itself.  This year there will also be a guest scarecrow area where non-residents can bring their scarecrows to display.  Oving itself is fairly flat and level so suitable throughout for wheelchair users. 

Disabled parking is available at the Jubilee Hall - please let us know in advance if this is required so that space can be reserved. The Hall has a disabled toilet. 

Refreshments are available both in the Hall and at the Church.  There are various attractions inside and outside the Hall, at the Church and outside in Madam Green Farm yard but if anyone has a mobility issue, there are tractor / trailer rides and the trailer has a ramp and securing points for a wheelchair.
