More than 50 of the straw-filled creations are set to appear in the village

Musbury will be no place for birds later this month when the village stages a scarecrow festival.

At least 50 of the straw-filled frighteners will be appearing around the streets on the weekend of July 14 and 15.

Kay Short, from the organising committee, said: “Many villagers are working really hard to make sure visitors get a good variety of characters to find outside homes, the pub, the garage and in the church.”

Also during the weekend, several talented members of the village are opening up art and craft studios to visitors featuring pottery, beads, willow work, photography and other items.

Added Kay, the village church secretary: “We look forward to a hosting the biggest Musbury community event for some years.

Please support us as both the village hall and church have improvements to make and for which they desperately need funds.”
