St Peter's Church, Formby

Scarecrow Shindig

Wednesday 21st – Sunday 25th September

Our Festival of Scarecrows took place in and around the Church in the days leading up to our Harvest Celebrations.
Individuals and groups produced a whole range of scarecrows – from the very scary, to the very friendly and they were positioned in the Church and in the Churchyard spread between the Porch and the Bier House.
Entries were numbered, and judged by visitors – with children’s votes counting twice as much as a “grown up’s” vote – and the results were announced at the Harvest Festival service in Church on Sunday evening.

After a staff night out ?
