Polegate Scarecrow Festival of 2021, bigger and better still supporting local causes.
The Scarecrow Festival will run from 8th - 22nd May 2021!
We are very proud to be supporting the fantastic work carried out by St Wilfrid's Hospice for a fourth year!
St Wilfrid’s Hospice Say -“Our mission is reaching out to transform end of life care for the people of Eastbourne, Seaford, Hailsham, Uckfield, Heathfield and all the points in between. We provide specialist care for people with any progressive, advanced life-limiting illness. Referrals are made by the patient’s GP or other healthcare professionals and care is delivered by a team that includes consultants in palliative medicine, specialist nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, counsellors and social workers.”
We were delighted to support SERV Sussex in 2019 and 2020 and we were amazed by their volunteer work so we have decided to support them for a third year!
SERV SUSSEX is a volunteer run, publicly funded charity who transport urgent and emergency blood & blood products, human donor breast milk, medication and medical equipment to Sussex hospitals. Free of charge to the NHS. Volunteers are on call 365 nights a year from 7pm to 6am, as well as 24 hour bank holiday and weekend cover. This includes Christmas day and New years day.
This year we will be judging a slighty wider area, enabling more residents to enter the competition and support our charities.
We will be judging the following areas and anything inbetween:
- Polegate from Cop Hall Roundabout to Dittons Roundabout (between the Polegate Bypass and Eastbourne Road)
- Stud Farm
- Wannock (Up to Filching Close and anything Polegate side of Broad Road)
Don't forget we are also running the Willingdon Scarecrow Festival!
