Summer Fayre and Scarecrow Hunt – Saturday 4th July 2015

Summer Fayre and Scarecrow Hunt – Saturday 4th July 2015

The Scarecrow Hunt and Summer Fayre take place this year on Saturday 4th July.

The theme for this year’s Scarecrow Hunt is Children’s Books. The hunt starts at 1pm from the school playground and should take 60-90 minutes to complete, with a great prize for the person or family that correctly identifies the most scarecrows. If you’d like to get into character, Mrs Wilson will be judging the best children’s book fancy dress at the Fayre.

Would you like to make a scarecrow for the hunt? Please get in touch!

The Summer Fayre runs from 2 to 4.30pm, with all the traditional stalls and games you would expect, including coconut shy, tombola, penalty shoot out and more, plus races for children and adults. For refreshments, we will have a bar and barbecue plus cream teas and ice cream too.

Are you able to lend a hand on the day? Maybe run a stall for 30 minutes? Please let us know!

After the fancy dress parade, the Fayre will draw to a close with the traditional balloon race at 4.30pm.

More information to come. Please keep an eye on Menston Mail, our website and our Facebook page.
