A DAPPER-LOOKING scarecrow is the envy of Brent Knoll as the Armani-clad creation has been named the best dressed villager.

Andrea Goodchild went that extra step when choosing the attire for her scarecrow during the village’s spring celebration – and it certainly paid off.

The posh apparel has certainly attracted a lot of attention from passers-by, and Andrea’s creation is now known as the ‘scaregent’.

The spring celebration, held on Sunday, also featured an arts and craft exhibition, with all proceeds going to St Michael’s Church and the village hall.
