Each year Oving Scarecrows mounts a celebratory family focused event which reaches into our whole community. In 2021 the date for your diary is 8th 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.
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.
