Something Scary is happening in Bramhall

8 Sep 2016

Something Scary is happening in Bramhall….it’s back! The Bramhall and Woodford Rotary Scarecrow Spectacular is running until 17th September.

There are four categories and judging will take place on Saturday 17th September at three venues around the village:

Mary Robinson MP is the main judge and hopefully a representative from Redrow, the main sponsor. The tableaux will be judged in situ by Bob Preece who is current President of the Rotary Club.

There is entertainment through the day including

  • } A Ceilidh between 12noon and 2pm in the Village Square. Everyone should come along and have a fantastic time with Maggoty.
  • } Walthew House Steel Band will alternate with The Wellington Street Stompers half hourly from 12noon
  • } The Norden Flute Quartet, a Zumba demonstration, and Bramhall School of Dance will be showing dances from around the world outside the Methodist Church starting at 12noon
  • } Zumba Bramhall will perform live at 12noon and The Norden Flute Quartet at 1pm outside Barclays Bank
  • } Adlington Morris Dancers will be outside Boots at 12.30 to see them and again at 1.30 near Superdrug.
  • } There will be Facepainting by CreateandPlay in the Village Square
  • } Pop-up display from Hack Back Owls in the Village Square
  • } Finally there will be table magicians roaming all through the village performing magic tricks for everyone to be amazed at.

Bramhall and Woodford Rotary will also be selling their latest publication, Billy Bow’s Holiday for £5. A fantastic book aimed primarily at 3-6 year old children produced from all the photos taken during last year’s event. The books are currently available at Ella’s, The Happy Potter, Little Big Heads, Simply Books, Crookilley Crafts, & Amaranth.

We also have a Scarecrow Trail around the Village for the youngsters to follow and find answers to clues.

Prizes and cups will be awarded to winners at the end of the event. Enter as an individual and you could win £100 or a Redrow teddy bear.

All profits will go to our Purple4Polio campaign, a new initiative to continue to raise money to eradicate polio throughout the world. It has been an ongoing project for over 20 years but with only 18 reported cases last year it is nearly there.

The Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club are very pleased that this event is being supported by Redrow who are currently developing the Woodford Garden Village.

Also Stockport MBC have once again very kindly agreed to waive parking charges in their car parks in Bramhall on Judging day.
