Open Day for Bothwell Scarecrow Festival 2013


Now in its third hugely successful year, the Bothwell Scarecrow Festival returns to the streets of the village all this week, culminating in an action-packed weekend of fun for all the family.

The community garden will be open to the public between 11am and 4pm on SATURDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER. We are conveniently situated right next door to Bothwell Primary School, one of the main event venues; so please do come along and see how our garden grows.

We will have a number of stalls selling plants, homemade preserves, fantastic products from our beekeepers, miniature scarecrows ideal for the parade on Sunday and other garden essentials; as well as our ever popular tombola and our (now famous) delicious home baking to enjoy with a tea, coffee or juice.

We are also delighted to announce that we will have a well-known local children’s author reading stories in our woodland walk; and buskers to keep us entertained too.

We look forward to welcoming you to our garden!

We regret that, with the exception of assistance dogs, we cannot allow dogs into the community garden.
