ST JAMES’ CHURCH SCARECROW AND FLOWER FESTIVAL 2017 SEPTEMBER 9TH AND 10TH
This event will take place in the village of High Wych, Sawbridgeworth, Herts CM21 0HY on the above weekend. This will be the second year we have run this event.
Scarecrows will line the main road from The Hand and Crown PH to High Wych School and also the short stretch of road past the park up to The Manor of Groves Hotel.
There will also be a display of 250 pairs of wellington boots filled with flowers along the route.
The centre of the festival will be at St James’ Church – the only church in the village. There will be parking facilities in The Memorial Hall next to the church and in the school playground on the other side of the church.
The churchyard will be filled with further scarecrows and craft and other stalls with a barbecue and a children’s trail. There will be further stalls inside the church where coffee and tea and refreshments can be bought.
Our wonderful team of flower arrangers headed by Rosemarie will depict the theme of “Musicals” in the church.
The event will be on Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and on Sunday from 12 noon till 4 pm.
Late Sunday afternoon we will literally have a “Boot Sale” where wellington boots filled with flowers can be purchased.

It was after being diagnosed with prostate cancer and successfully treated, that whilst talking with staff Chris identified the need for urgently required equipment in Barts Radiotheraphy Department. Equipment that would make the Radiotherapy process run more smoothly for patients and staff a like. Chris decided to put his years of professional experience to good use and give a series of fund raising performances in aid of the department.

Chris gave his first public performance in 1953 at the tender age of 10, and made his first television appearance in 1958, on the equivalent of Britain's Got Talent. He began his professional theatrre career in earnest in 1959 - as a back end of a cow.
In 2011 and 2013 his critically acclaimed one man show Champagne Charlie sold out London's historic Wiltons Music Hall, and was also lives streamed around the world. He has appeared in many classic TV series, including, The Six Wives of Henry VII, Pennies from Heaven, etc. He has been interviewed about his encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of Music Hall for radio and major BBC TV and ITV documentaries
