Sum­mer Fete and Scare­crow Fest to be best ever

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS are hop­ing that this year’s Folksworth Sum­mer Fete and Scare­crow Fest will be the best yet.

The events are tak­ing place through­out this week­end in the vil­lage near Peter­bor­ough.

On Satur­day from 12noon to 1pm, the fun will start with the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Folksworth Fun Park, the vil­lage’s new chil­dren’s play area, in Townsend Way.

The sum­mer fete, fea­tur­ing stalls and a beer fes­ti­val, will kick off in earnest from 1pm at the back of the Fox Inn, in Manor Road.

And fromThe Wizard of Oz to Lit­tle Miss Muf­fet, the en­tries to last year’s Scare­crow Fest were imag­i­na­tive and in­ven­tive and or­gan­is­ers hope this year’s will match them.

The Scare­crow Fest will start on Satur­day but all scare­crows will go on dis­play from 10am to 4pm on Sun­day all over the vil­lage.

One of the or­gan­is­ers of the event said: “Last year we had over 20 scare­crows and we’re hop­ing for many more this year.

“All this along with the vil­lage fete and beer fes­ti­val should be a good day for all who come along.”
