Beware there’s a Scarecrow invasion! Over 100 Scarecrows including dinosaurs, fairies, giants and even a Harry Potter Scarecrow, are coming soon to the Chew Valley.
Part of the Winford Parish Scarecrow Festival, which runs from Sunday 6th October – Sunday 27th October, these Scarecrows have been created to support a little boy named Harvey Hext, who is battling Neuroblastoma, a particularly aggressive type of childhood cancer.
Harvey’s family have been working hard to raise money to pay for 7-year-old Harvey’s treatment and have already raised a whopping £150,000 for The Harvey Hext Appeal.
But this amount is not enough; a further £150,000 is needed for Harvey’s treatment and Harvey’s family are desperately trying to raise this money.
Please take part in the Help Harvey Scarecrow Trail and help raise money for Harvey! To take part in the Scarecrow trail, you can pick up a trail map from Chew lake Tea Rooms, The Chew Magna Co-op, Winford Village Stores or Chew Stoke Village Store. There is a prize for a lovely family mini-break to Devon, too.
There will also be a Harvey’s Scarecrow Fayre on Saturday 19th October at Winford Primary School, Winford Village, which starts at 11.30am – 3.30pm.
There will be lots of family friendly activities! Apart from some exciting Scarecrow spotting, there will be welly wanging, learning about the Community Farm, craft activities, hula hooping, Avon Owls to meet and a puppet show. There will also be a cracking barbeque and delicious cakes and treats to enjoy.
