Usain Bolt, Luis Suarez and Winston Churchill were among some of the more colourful characters at a village festival over the weekend.

They were among 33 scarecrows presented at the Aston le Walls Scarecrow Festival held on both Saturday and Sunday.

Villagers also created The Village People, Sonny and Cher and Bill and Ben the Flower Pot Men in straw.

Organiser Steve Neville said: “It went very well and we were very pleased with the turnout. We had a lot of people from the village and from the surrounding villages as well which was very pleasing.

“We raised just over £600 which will go towards the village hall, the only amenity we have in our very small village.”
