CHECK OUT THE CROWS!

The Heather Scarecrow Festival gets bigger each year thanks to the hard work of residents who create scarecrows to raise funds for village groups and organisations.

Scarecrow
Just one of the 2004 entrants up for the top prizes!

Many scarecrows are immediately recognisable. The cast includes characters such as Shrek Crow, Greengrass and Scary Poppins!

The village gets transformed during the festival and a walk round is a real treat for you and and any little ones!

If you missed the 2004 festival - don't fear as you can check out the crows here - just don't feed them!

CHECK OUT THE CROWS!

What do you think of the crows? Have you been to Heather?
