Pupils at Wilberfoss Primary School have been working hard to create a range of scarecrows which will feature in the village’s annual festival.
Classes throughout the school have made their own scarecrows which will become a part of the Wilberfoss Scarecrow Festival in September.
This year the festival will be raising funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Friends of Wilberfoss School.
Chairperson of the group, Alex Drinkall, said they hope to use the donations to raise the final amount needed to install new playground equipment.
She added: “I know the children have put a lot of effort into making the scarecrows. It’s a great way the children can get involved with the community and the school are getting something back too.”
This year the theme is cartoon characters.
Organiser Sue Butterfield said: “It’s just such a lovely day and we get such nice comments from visitors and locals. We take in people coming from all over Yorkshire to see the festival.”
The event will take place on Saturday September 3 and Sunday 4. Visitors will be given a map of all the scarecrows and they must guess the names of each one. Children can also take part in the Duck Hunt with little ducks hidden in different scarecrows.
Entry is £2 per person with accompanied children under 12 free. Scarecrow maps will be available from Wilberfoss Community Centre.
