Scarecrow festival

Scarecrows will be invading Wirksworth this week when an annual festival hits town.

The scarecrow festival opens on Friday, May 25 and runs until June 9.

Entrants looking to win the Scarecrow Cup can pick up a form from Marsden’s Gift Shop in the Market Place at Wirksworth.

All of the money raised by the event will go to the Air Ambulance.
