Sad at missing Thorngumbald Scarecrows? – Don’t miss an event near you!

Did you miss me?

A SCARECROW TRAIL took place in Thorngumbald last Saturday (7th July 2012) – and we missed it!

Did you miss me?

Now we love Scarecrow events because they bring out the local community; residents, children, grandparents and carers – and they are a great attraction for visitors too. And they make fantastic photo opportunities!

So it’s a real shame that we missed the event. The Holderness Gazette was there to tell us it was very busy with over 60 scarecrows on display and £1,350 raised for Thorngumbald Pre-School and St Mary’s Church.

…. But here at HU12 Online we do feel that if the event had been promoted by us as well, then many more visitors would have attended and much more money would have been raised! We are not bragging – it’s just a fact that our What’s On? page is a popular place for people to find out about local events!

Telling us about your event is easy – see our Newsroom – or just complete the What’s On? Quick Form below or on the What’s On? page.

You can email us about your events (also your posters) directly to 

If you see a notice or a poster about an event that you think we should know about – take a quick picture on your mobile phone or camera and send it to us. 

By the way – if you like Scarecrows then Aldbrough Scarecrows takes place on Sunday 15th July 2012, and Paull Scarecrow Festival is on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August 2012 – so have fun at both these events, and do send us your photographs of the events to publish.
