Wardle Scarecrow Festival brings community together

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves - scarecrow edition
Creative residents of Wardle have put on a fantastic show for this year’s Scarecrow Festival.
Over 70 scarecrows have been entered by local businesses, families and community groups. People have flocked to see the displays, with gardens across the village being decorated with scarecrows from the traditional to the wacky and wonderful.
Organiser and local business owner Rebecca Hilton, of Craft Cottage, said: “The village was buzzing. There were lots of excited children spending time with their families, enjoying the autumn fresh air, catching up with friends and having fun, which is what the event is all about. Many families also had lots of fun making their own scarecrow and getting creative.
“Our event is completely free which made it inclusive for all families across the borough during these difficult times with the pandemic. Over 500 maps were kindly printed by local Wardle-based business Andizyne, who do embroidery and garment printing. Any other costs have been covered by ourselves at Craft Cottage.”
