More scarecrows needed for this year’s festival

PEOPLE with a creative flair are being encouraged to take part in this year’s Underwood and Bagthorpe Scarecrow Festival.

Each year, residents show off their scarecrows in their front gardens and school pupils display their creations in the playing fields so a team of judges can walk through the villages choosing the winners.

Residents join them on their trail, with a map in hand, showing where the scarecrows are located.

All proceeds will go to St Michael’s Church and The New Underwood Community centre. This year’s event is on May 7 and 8. Call Penny Fell on 01773 784645.
