Take a leisurely stroll around the Scarecrow Festival 14th-15th July
The National Wildflower Centre, a local Shangri-la, will be opening its doors to the public to view the entries to their Scarecrow Festival submitted by schools and locals in Merseyside. The competition was open to anyone who’d like to make a scarecrow. This year’s theme was Royal Recycling and Going for Green Gold.
Entries are on display around the National Wildflower Centre over the festival weekend and what a sight it will be: – fantastic, creative pieces of work, colourful imaginitive characters all peeping out here and there all over the Centre park.
Entry to the centre is free all weekend, so all you need to do is pick up a programme from the shop and see if you can find all the scarecrows while taking a leisurely stroll around the beautiful wildflower displays. The kiddies will love this and it will keep them active for a good solid hour or two if you use the adventure playground. If it rains then there are numerous activity workshop sessions to amuse and educate.
Don’t miss the selection of vintage and craft stalls to browse around and pick up a bargain! And, finally, don’t forget to take a break in the Cornflower Cafe’ – the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea or Italian coffee or a tasty piece of homemade cake then, finish off reading that E.L James adventure novel in secret!
