Birds be scared - the scarecrows come to Willoughby

Have your say

PLENTY of curious characters descended on Willoughby on Sunday for the village’s annual scarecrow festival.

The festival attracted plenty of visitors to the one- day event which saw 33 scarecrows on display.

Among them were Straw Wars, Extreme Digging and one based on the Chelsea Flower Show.

Those behind the festival were pleased with how it went.

One of the organisers Dorothy Ogle said: “We had a good attendance to view our 33 scarecrows and money raised will be donated to village organisations and church.”
