RESIDENTS of Belbroughton and their straw-clad counterparts will welcome thousands of visitors to the village this weekend for the annual scarecrow festival.
This year’s event, which takes place between 10.30am and 5pm tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday (September 29), will have the theme ‘What made Britain Great?’
As well as the scarecrows, there will be a host of other activities, including zorbs, bungi trampolines, a steam train, stunt motorbikes, face-painting, animals, live music, children’s karaoke, bottle tombola, barbecue, pig roast, tea and cakes, craft stalls and much more.
There will also be an aerobatic display from former RAF Tornado pilot Richard Goodwin on both days.
This week, youngsters from Belbroughton First School have been busy putting their creative talents to the test and making scarecrows.
A spokesperson for the school said: “It’s something they always look forward to - they have really enjoyed it.”
