This Year Martham will be celebrating its 12th Scarecrow Festival

 

Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May 2019

10a.m. – 5p.m

 

As in previous years we welcome all residents, organisations and businesses to make Scarecrows, we do not have a theme so please let your imagination go free.

 

Why not hold a Garden/Garage sale, this will give you a good opportunity to sell those items you no longer require.

 

Once again, we look forward to seeing your Yarn Bombing entries.

Unable to knit or crochet you could use material and put your sewing skills to practice.

 

As with the Scarecrows there is no theme.

Look on Google for ideas and inspiration.
