Scawby Gala Weekend Friday 5th June to Sunday 7th June

There is now a list in Scawby Post Office for anyone who would like to make a SCARECROW, just add your name, address and email or a phone number will do if you haven't got email. The theme is CHILDREN'S BOOKS, we are hoping for more than last year's total of 38 and there are cash prizes for the best scarecrows. £30, £20 and £10. If you are not within walking distance of the village centre then please contact Rosemary 01652 655595 as we would really love to have some scarecrows in the central areas such as the Village Green, Messingham Lane and outside the Village Hall. Remember to make your scarecrows as sturdy and weather-proof as possible as they will be on display for a week from Sunday 31st May to Sunday 7th June. Judging will take place at the beginning of the week while they are looking fresh but hopefully they will also look good at the end of the week for the Gala Weekend.

The TREASURE HUNT starts on Friday evening and the maps cost £4 which includes a voucher for 2 homemade beefburgers so make sure you are at the Sutton Arms on Saturday evening between 6pm and 8pm to redeem your vouchers at the BARBEQUE with LIVE MUSIC in the car park.

Tickets for the DANCE and HOG ROAST on Friday night and the AFTERNOON TEA with ENTERTAINMENT on Saturday will be available from 1st May.

Gala Sunday at Scawby Playing Field will be bigger and better than ever, we have lots of different events planned and there will be lots to see and do for all ages. The fourth annual FUN RUN will set off at 10.30am from the playing field. Everyone is welcome, bring your dogs and children in strollers. just turn up and join in.

Programmes will be delivered to all homes early in May. Please keep checking the website and our facebook page for up to date information.
