scarecrow: Jessica Ennis, The Joker and Robin Hood are just three of the heroes and villains which could be immortalised in straw next month for Uphill village's fifth annual scarecrow festival.

The theme of heroes and villains could see any character, fact or fiction or even an Olympic gold medallist created for the unusual weekend on September 22-23.

Village Society chairman Lew Hartley said: “All is set for another great weekend of fun and enjoyment in Uphill.

“From the tower on the hill to the roof of the local pub, in gardens and school grounds we are certain to see a spectacular and impressive display of scarecrows for residents and visitors to enjoy.”
