FECKENHAM’S popular Scarecrow Weekend is back - after a gap of two years.

Feckenham villagers have been busy making the most imaginative, weird and wonderful displays to delight, enthral and (sometimes) scare.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13 and the Scarecrows will be on parade from 11.30am to 4.30pm each day.

A spokesman said: "It’s an ideal day out for all the family before the winter takes all the fun out of being outdoors.

"There’ll be a scarecrow trail to follow with maps available at the start on The Square - where you’ll also find the (in)famous pink tea tent with a mouthwatering array of cakes to be washed down with tea, coffee or soft drinks.

"There’ll also be games and novelties for the youngsters."

They added: "Last time there were over 50 scary creations for visitors to enjoy – and to judge. The scarecrow competition will be judged by the general public who can pick up their voting slips at the start of the trail. The winners will be announced on Sunday afternoon.

"This event is just for fun – admission and maps will be free of charge. Free parking at Winfields Superstore, Astwood Lane. B96 6HQ."
