Have your say

Join Sacrewell’s celebration of the traditional harvest this September 26 and 27.

The area surrounding the centre’s 18th Century grade II listed watermill which reopened after a £1.8m restoration project in July, 
will be transformed into a hive of rural activity as it delves into food and farming at its finest.

Among the activities available will be milling, corn plaiting, apple scrumping and pressing, drop spinning and willow weaving, plus much more.

Sacrewell is working with a number of local organisations such as Peterborough Environment City Trust and The Green Backyard for a range of farming and harvest based activities and there’s still time to join in.

Marketing executive Megan Allen said: “We are still looking for rural crafters who are able to come along and share their skill with us for the weekend.

“Lace makers and folk musicians are high on our list of people we’re looking for and we want each event to be as interactive as possible.”

Sacrewell is encouraging groups, families and everyone in between to make and bring their own scarecrow for a competition which will be judged over the weekend.

Megan added: “Entry forms for the competition can be downloaded on our website Sacrewell.org.uk and we’ll be accepting entries throughout the week prior to the event.”
