After the success of last year’s event, Dyke Village Hall Committee has decided to extend the event to become a full festival.

As well as the creative scarecrow displays that will be on show throughout the weekend, this year there will also be a classic car and bike show, a motorised boating lake, an art exhibition, a dog training arena, plenty of stalls, a penny farthing and even a special visit from some birds of prey.

Organiser, Samantha Coles said: “It will be a great event for all of the family to enjoy and we look forward to seeing the mass of smiling faces in our village again this year.”

The scarecrow competition is well underway with people throughout the village having created their prize scarecrows. People from outside the village are also able to enter scarecrows by completing an entry form available online at www.dykevillagehall.org.uk

They will also be a barbecue and bouncy castle on the Saturday and a carvery on the Sunday. Local farmer, Will Ash is kindly providing one of his fields for car parking.

Scarecrows will be on display from 11am on both days and judging will take place on Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Winners will be announced at Dyke Village Hall on Sunday at 12pm.
