Wray Scarecrow Festival GB4WSF

Well here we are again, it's time for the Wray Scarecrow Festival and for those of you who have never been to this event, you will be quite surprised if you pass through Wray between the28th April and 7th May. Every house is adorned with a scarecrow of some description, you will even be more surprised to see a 15 foot scarecrow walking down the middle of the road towards you, of which there are at least 6 This event is attended by thousands each year.

Bank Holiday Monday is a real family day and enjoyed by young and old. There is ample parking on the field, although please be aware it will be very busy! There is food available in the village institute, marquee on the field and the cafe at the end of the village.

This year it is their 25th Anniversary, so we have been asked to put on a special event station. The call sign is GB4WSF. It is also about B4RN (Broadband For the Rural North), a community project to bring superfast fibre optic broadband to the rural areas of Lancashire, so it will be a joint venture.

We have the call sign from 26/04/12 to 08/05/12. The main day for operating will be on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May and we will be operating from a prime position on the main field where all the events and rural craft demonstrations take place.

We will also be operating on other days for short periods on most of the HF, VHF, UHF bands in the vicinity.

Please see our QRZ.com page GB4WSF and follow the links to see images taken by me at previous year's events, the diary of events which take place through the year and also for QSL information.

Please come and visit our station and make yourself known to us and most of all enjoy the event.
