Scarecrow Festival 2018

Gildersome Parish Council are pleased to announce that this year's Scarecrow Festival will be held on Sunday the 24th June

from 10 am  until 5 pm.  As it's only three weeks to go to our 10th annual village Scarecrow Festival could anyone thinking of making a scarecrow please let us know as we are going to the printers soon. Join in and make one, it's such good fun and every made scarecrow is appreciated.

To register your scarecrow please phone Kathy on 0113 253 0667 or Pat on 0113 253 7019.

Thank you to everyone who took part in this wonderful event, whether making the scarecrows, performing or volunteering. Without everyone doing their bit, however small, this event would not be the huge success it is.


We had a wonderful day and hope you all did too.


         The much anticipated winners of the best scarecrows voted for by the public:


              1st Prize:     Number 59 - Team Daniel


              2nd Prize:   Number 16 - Room on the broom


              3rd Prize:    Number 52 - Wishing Well - Lady before/after


Kieran Murphy correctly worked out the phrase which was 'There is a squirrel on top.' The prize being the scarecrow cake. Finally, thank you to everyone who came, not just from Gildersome but further afield to enjoy the day. Thanks everyone
