Bramley Scarecrow Festival started in 2020 as a community response to Covid. This year saw changes in organisers’ dates (August Bank Holiday weekend not Hallowe’en) and format (no entry fees or sponsored prizes).
Organiser Cathy Mill said: “People resist change. This year we wanted to offer families a summer weekend opportunity rather than a shorter one in late autumn.
“Yes, schools will need good notice if they are going to participate. But the core response to this weekend has been very enthusiastic. We look forward to repeating the same format next year and would like to thank West Leeds Dispatch for their interest and support.”
Here are some photos of this weekend’s displays:
