SCARING the daylights out of the competition could bag lucky residents a top prize.

As part of Forge Mill Needle Museum's Scarecrow Day residents are being challenged to make their own colourful straw filled character.

They will then be entered into the competition with Kingfisher Shopping Centre vouchers worth £25, £50 and £75 up for grabs.

To enter residents should turn up at the museum on Wednesday and Thursday (August 20 and 21) between 11am and 3pm with some old clothes.

For the price of £3 they will then be given the materials they need to bring their scarecrow to life.

The winners will be chosen on Scarecrow Day on August 24 between 11am and 5pm. The event will also feature children’s activities, pony rides and facepainting.
