Resident scarecrows and Visitors Scarecrow trail. Plant sale, stalls, crafts, refreshments in the Village Hall and Flower festival. Our festival is largely dedicated to raising funds for our 14th Church however, part of the proceeds of the weekend are shared with other local charitable organisations in the village. There were two main car parks - one near the White Hart Inn and the other near the Cross Keys Inn. The Scarecrow Trail is just over one mile.

Recently the church bells have been restored. They are now are heard controlled by a electronically controlled chiming mechanism as the church tower is no longer strong enough to withstand the strains by full circle ringing. The bells were chimed for 15minutes 4 times a day during the festival
