This year the trail is based on the theme of TV shows and more than 35 residents are taking part.

A number of community groups and businesses have also made scarecrows for the event, including Royal Oak Stores, Queenie’s hair salon, Ardnave Holiday Park and Home Farm, in Kewstoke.

Organisers are looking forward to putting on the popular event, which brings the community together. Annie Taylor said: “The trail will be the first event in the village since the pandemic and will bring many smiles to the residents.” 

Maps of the trail are available from Royal Oak Stores, in Crookes Lane in Kewstoke, at the street entrance of Kewstoke Village Hall and on Beach Road.
