COMMUNITY EVENTS in Hedon have certainly increased in number since Hedon Town Council’s Events Committee was formed last year. The latest initiative to be scheduled – in an already impressive list of events – is a Hedon Scarecrow Walk.
Scarecrow trails and festivals have certainly grown in popularity in recent years. Last year we had the Preston Scarecrows in June, the magnificent Gala and Scarecrow Trail in Thorngumbald in July (which this year is expected to be an even bigger event encompassing Ryehill, Bridge Bungalows and Thornfields as well as Ryehill and Camerton), and the Paull Scarecrow Festival on August Bank Holiday.
Now Hedon is hoping to follow in the crow-scaring traditions set by our neighbour villages! The Hedon Scarecrow Walk has been scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September 2014 – get the dates in your diaries!
South West Holderness looks set to become ‘Scarecrow Capital’ for 2014… Can’t wait!
