Scarecrows set to steal the show

SCARECROWS will be on parade in a new edition to a village show.

The Stannington Make, Bake, Grow and Show event takes place on Saturday, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

One of the star attractions this year will be a scarecrow wheelbarrow race at 4pm, but there are plenty of activities going on through the day, including a dog show from 2pm, games and a raffle. Refreshments will be available.

There will be all the traditional show classes, with entries invited from 9.30am to 10.45am, and public viewing from 2pm. The produce will be auctioned at the end of the event at 4.30pm.

The show takes place at Stannington Village Hall. Admission costs £1.50 per adult, free for children.
