Oving Scarecrow Day


Celebrating Our Community

About Us

The idea behind Oving Scarecrows is simple – we aim to deliver a great value family day out that is accessible and appealing to our whole community.

From an idea mooted around a kitchen table to develop an event that would bring our community together in a celebration of its rural roots, since 2008 it has grown to become a red-letter day in our village calendar. Oving is now renowned for its annual Scarecrow Day and we attract an increasing number of visitors as our reputation for delivering a fantastic day spreads ever wider.

One of our key aims is to ensure no-one is excluded from participating, so, not only is everyone who organises and helps deliver the day a volunteer, but we also raise sponsorship, mostly from local businesses, so that we can provide most of our family activities free or at subsidised prices. We are a charity and we plan our events on a break- even basis, with any surplus from selling teas and raffles being ploughed back in to provide low cost entertainments and attractions. A great day out at Oving Scarecrow Day continues to be fantastic value for money, particularly for families.
