Move over Worzel Gummidge! Organisers of the annual Bramley Scarecrow Festival are preparing for the second event over the late August Bank Holiday weekend.
The first festival was successfully held in a socially distanced fashion last Hallowe’en. This year’s event has been moved forward to August 27 to 30 in a bid to avoid the rain – and organisers are asking people to make scarecrow and display them in their garden.
The theme is up to you and there will be prizes for the best scarecrow.
One of the organisers, Mark Barrow, told WLD:
“We’re trying to get the community to come together and make something for people to go round and look at. It was started last year and was quite a success with prizes donated by Councillor Kevin Ritchie. But hopefully it could become a yearly event and raise money for charity.
“Quite a few took part last year but as it was at Halloween a lot of the scarecrows got spoilt with the rain. And people have said this date would be better.”
