Scarecrow Festival and Royal Garden Party come to Burnham-On-Sea

A scarecrow festival and a Royal garden party is set to be held in Burnham-On-Sea next month.

The town's Marine Cove gardens will be hosting the sea-themed Scarecrow Day on July 6th when residents and local groups will be invited to display their own scarecrow.

In preparation for the event, a window display has been created at Burnham's Library by the Friends of Marine Cove and Sedgemoor District Council's Community Gardener Jacqui Strong.

A Mermaid has been created in line with the nautical scarecrow theme and will be on display until Saturday 29th June and then in the garden on Scarecrow Day, which will take place between 10am and 2pm.

"We would encourage any schools, groups, shops or organisations to get involved. The event is free to take part in and should be a lot of fun," Jacqiui told

The Friends of Marine Cove will also be holding a garden party to celebrate the Royal Coronation Festival later in August. There will be traditional cucumber sandwiches, cakes and tea or coffee available for free.

Churchfield School pupils and Burnham District Pantomime Society will be singing some old favourites to entertain visitors during the event.

The garden party is being funded by the Friends of Marine Cove to express their thanks for the public’s support over the last two years.
