A scarecrow festival running throughout Easter is underway in the Colne Valley … and it’s perfect for Disney fans.

There are 40 scarecrows to discover at Scapegoat Hill and neighbouring village Nettleton Hill with visitors amazed at the quality of the creations.

Some are more like full-on Disney scenes than scarecrows and people can get maps showing just where each scarecrow is and also a 40-question quiz with a question relating to each one.

Sheets cost just £3 and are available from https://bit.ly/3Tvjq1Q or from all the four main venues involved which are Scapegoat Hill Baptist Church, the Scape House Inn, Scapegoat Hill Liberal Club and the Pennine Manor Hotel.

All the money raised will go towards new play equipment at Scapegoat Hill Junior and Infant School.

The weekend fun lasts for four days. It began yesterday, Good Friday, with dozens of people on the trail and runs right through to Easter Monday. People are welcome on the trail from 9am to 7pm.

The chapel at Scape will be open from 12noon to 2pm on each day serving tea, coffee and cake.
