Uffington Scarecrow Festival postponed because of heavy rain

Have your say

UFFINGTON Scarecrow Festival will not take place this weekend because of the recent heavy rain.

The event was due to take place on Sunday and bank holiday Monday but organisers have been forced to postpone it because the ground is waterlogged.

The event will now take place on Monday, June 4 and Tuesday, June 5 to coincide with the village’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

The scarecrow fair raffle will still be drawn on Monday.
