2015 - This 3rd event raised £12,500.
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.

The proceeds raised from this 5th event will be used in supporting our local School, St Chad’s C of E (VC) First School, the village Playing Fields Adult Gym project, and St.Chad’s Church West End Door project


New Glass Doors...
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.


Porch Apex 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.

This works was carried in the week before the 2017 Scarecrow Festival, 22nd to 24th September.
