A total of 55 displays were on show in villagers' homes as people tried to identify the title of the films.

Organiser Annie Taylor said: "Despite the awful weather on Saturday, there was enough clearing for people to go round with the map and list of locations.

"Everybody was surprised at the quality of the displays, imagination, creativity and good sense of humour.

"There was a real sense of community and togetherness which lightened the spirits.

"We are thinking of making a calendar with images of all the scarecrows, and the profit will go to charity."
