the proceeds from previous Pattingham Scarecrow Festivals have
benefitted the local community...
2011 - The total proceeds
raised at this first event amounted to £7,000.
This was used to fund the NEW glass doors in the porch
of St Chad's Church in Pattingham. see below >>
2013 - The total proceeds
raised this year was £10,500.
This amount was used as a further contribution to the NEW
church glass doors, together with £4,200 given
to help fund the development of the new play area on the village
playing fields, the Pattingham Regeneration Group.
2015 - This 3rd event raised
To date this has been used to fund £5000 worth of educational
equipment in St Chad's C of E First School. The remaining
amount will be used to finance another modernisation project
in St Chad's Church.
2017 - This 4th event raised
The proceeds raised from this 4th event will be used in supporting
our local school, St Chad's C of E (VC) First School, together
with providing funds for further modernisation of the Church
Some of the proceeds from both 2011 and 2013 Pattingham Scarecrow
Festivals were used to finance the removal of the old Victorian
wooden doors in the main entrance of St Chad's Church and replace
these with new glass doors. The new glass doors were installed
in January 2015.
The glass was etched with St Chad Crosses together with the logo
of the mascot of the Scarecrow Festival, nicknamed 'Charlie'.
Charlie can be seen quite clearly when the sun shines through
the door and creates a shadow of him.
On Sunday 27th September 2015 at the Evensong service, the Archdeacon
of Walsall, Dr Sue Weller dedicated the doors.
Dr Weller can be seen standing outside the new doors after
the service had ended. Charlie is also visible just to the right
of Dr Weller's hand.
Stone is replaced...
Some of the proceeds from Pattingham Scarecrow Festivals have
been used to replace the Apex Stone over the porch.
Research was carried out to try to find exactly what was originally
at the apex of the porch arch with no success, although it was
suggested that perhaps a cross may have been in this place.
It was finally
decided to repair the stone by replacing it with a new stone
with a plain design, as can be seen in the photograph.
was carried in the week before the 2017 Scarecrow Festival, 22nd
to 24th September.
