SEVENTEEN scarecrows lined the streets of Awsworth this week as the village’s scarecrow festival is in full swing.

The characters appeared on Saturday June 25 and will be on show until Saturday July 2 where the winners will be announced at the Party on the Rec event.

Organised by the Awsworth Community Association, the festival saw properties across the village get involved.

Chairman Kurt Whitten said: “Everyone was really impressed with the scarecrows and they’re still up for people to see.

“The judges had a tough task but they’ve made up their minds although results won’t be announced until Party on the Rec.”
