BIRDS will be given a fright in Wilberfoss this weekend when the village holds its annual Scarecrow Festival.

Numerous scarecrows will be scattered around the village on Saturday and Sunday which people will have to find using a map and guess what each one is supposed to be.

Maps can be bought from Wilberfoss Community Centre.

Those who return their entry forms at the end of the day could win £25.

There will be refreshments, a raffle and a cake stall at the church hall.

The event will be take place from 12.30pm until 5pm on both days.
