Scarecrows from the big screen is the theme for this year’s Norland Scarecrow event.

People of Norland are already planning the 14th successive Scarecrow festival from September 6 to 9 which coincides with the Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing.

Organiser Keith Woodhouse said: “Scarecrows can be as simple or as complex as you like. The more diverse the more fun!”

The ‘film’ theme was chosen by children from Norland CofE school.

Mr Woodhouse said: “This year, a greater emphasis is being placed on getting children involved in the making and exhibition.”
