Fleetwood Scarecrow Festival is well underway with scarecrows popping up all over town.

Now in its third year, the festival, which is designed to increase footfall in the town centre, has captured the imagination of residents - and it’s looking like this year is no exception.

The festival is also a competition with some great prizes up for grabs this year for three categories - individuals and families, schools and groups, businesses and streets.

It’s simple to enter - post a picture to the festival’s Facebook page, the judges will pick their finalists and next week the entries will be published in the Weekly News for voting.
