Have your say

It is an annual event that is now in its 16th year and it highlights the best seasonal and local produce.

Children can get stuck in to a pumpkin decorating competition, the winner of which will be announced at the end of the day.

There will also be lots of children’s games and activities to keep them entertained.

The outdoor event will also be attempting to beat the current world record for the most scarecrows in one field.

Scarecrow Avenue will play host to all of the scarecrows that have been created and will be displayed as community art.

At the event there will be craft stalls and a wide variety of food and drink, with pumpkin being featured in some of the products.

Visitors will be kept entertained by live music at the Chapel Sessions Music Marquee. The headlining act will be Love Street, a five-piece band. They will be joined by Paper Trains, who are a modern three-piece string band.

Admission: adults £4, children £1 – this includes parking.
