Childhood Characters

We are pleased to announce that we will be repeating the Scarecrow Festival for 2017.

All you have to do is make a scarecrow and display it in a prominent position on your property.


Think of a character – the only limitation is your imagination. Grab a few things and let your idea grow. Your Scarecrow could be something in keeping with this year’s theme ‘Childhood Characters’ or anything you want it to be. This is an open competion for all Comberbach residents, clubs, churches and organisations.


·                 Scarecrows can be standing, sitting, hanging, any way you wish.

·                 Should be constructed from non valuable materials as their safety cannot be guaranteed.
