It’s that time of year again, probably the busiest weekend of the year. Slingsby Scarecrow weekend takes place over the May Day weekend running from 10am Saturday 5th May through to Monday 7th May.
Scarecrow trails are available from the ‘pop up’ café in the Methodist Chapel, or from Robin Hood Caravan Park or from Tony’s village shop, for a small charge to raise funds for Friends of Slingsby School.
The ‘pop up’ café will run from 12 noon to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, serving refreshments, home-made cake and savouries, and runs alongside a ‘pre-loved’ children’s stall.
Scarecrow entries, modern and traditional, are displayed around the village of Slingsby, so remember to vote for your favourite Scarecrow to be in with a chance of winning a prize.
Because the Scarecrow weekend runs into the May Day Monday, it’s joined by the traditional May Day festivities taking place on the village green, including May Pole dancing and traditional stalls and refreshments.
So come along and support a great cause, and maybe get lucky and win a prize.
