Holwell Scarecrow Festival

The Results!

1st Place went to Peter Rabbit and his friends. That was fantastic, and a clear winner. Second and third places were split by one vote! Second was the smoking dragon, and third was the minions. Thanks for all the votes, we had nearly 500!

The real winner, of course, was the The Garden House Hospice. We raised over £2,400 for them which is an incredible amount of money. I'm so grateful to everyone who donated, your money will go to help people who really, really need it. Thank you. 

Look HERE for pictures of all our scarecrows and you can still DONATE HERE! 

Thank you for joining us at Holwell’s 5th Scarecrow Festival. And don't worry! We're already being asked about next year... 

You can see the entries from previous years here: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

This year we are hoping to have scarecrows from our neighbouring villages to add to the fun!

As we did last year, we're going to display the scarecrows for a whole week, so that everyone can have a chance to walk around our lovely little village and hunt scarecrows. For those who are not able to come to the festival, we'll have photographs of this year's entries on this site as soon as they're displayed. You'll be able to go to our giving site to vote for your favourite and make a donation to the hospice. If voting on-line is difficult for you then we'll have somewhere safe you can leave your vote and donation.
