Fernhill Heaths scarecrow trail and competition will take place during half term week – 28th October to 3rd November. We hope that children and families of all ages will have fun creating and making a scarecrow to put outside their homes or in the window.
Last year saw even more fabulous and inventive scarecrows springing up all over the village. Can you help us beat last year’s numbers and make it a true invasion?
BBC Hereford and Worcester came out to make a short video and also aired the story on the radio. As a result, lots of visitors came, and along with local and families, happily and excitedly, followed the scarecrow trail around the village.
The closing date for entries is 26th October and the judging will take place on Wednesday 30th October by the manager of Fernhill House Care Home, who are kindly sponsoring the event.
Entry forms are available now and the route to take in order to see all the scarecrows will be available from the Costcutter and Spar Shops from 27th October. Refreshments will be available at the Baptist Church on O’keys Lane throughout the day.

The land ownership issue has been resolved and Taylor Wimpey have to apply to do the works necessary to widen the road. Councillor Tony Miller is applying pressure to ensure this is performed before the development is totally inhabited, otherwise it is understood that the responsibility to do this will then pass to the residents.
On Saturday November 30th from 2-4pm Father Christmas will be visiting Fernhill Heath again. He will travel around the village before arriving at his grotto in the Memorial Hall Fernhill Heath at 2pm. There will be various stalls and childrens activities in the hall – an excellent time to do some Christmas shopping. Refreshments will also be available – so keep the date free in your diary! More information will be available nearer the date and in the upcoming “Events” booklet. For further information please contact Meg on 01905 454601.
The traffic lights are currently being installed and they will be 4 way which will allow users of the car park to exit at the lights. Priority will be given to the A38 and Hurst Road. The installation will take 6 weeks and is scheduled over August, there will be one definite weekend closure on 25/8/19 and another weekend closure on 2/9/19 is scheduled if there are any issues. The Parish Council have expressed their extreme concern about the lights and the impact of them on the businesses in Fernhill Heath and the effect on the residents.
The North Claines Parish Council website has been re-designed and updated so that news about the Parish, its events and other relevant information related to the area can be shared with Parishioners. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note there is traffic disruption along the A38 as you near the Copcut Elm pub due to roadworks related to the housing development.
