Video: Barrowby Scarecrow Festival was ex-straw-dinary!

Have your say

Families in Barrowby pulled out all the stops for this year’s Barrowby Scarecrow Festival.

Lots of families made a huge effort in creating their own scarecrow in keeping with the theme of ‘nursery rhymes and fairytales’.

Some were placed on the village green, while others were put on show in gardens and on driveways.

Jackie West was one of the event organisers, along with Brian Inglis, Sarah Cooley, Claire Milner, Jenny Collinson, Kate Waghorn and Tania Stukins.

She said: “It was so amazing, such a successful weekend. It brought the whole community together.

“It’s very much a family event.”
