The world of television will be brought to life through scarecrows during a festival in Uphill this weekend.

The village is holding its popular annual scarecrow festival and the theme this year is telly addicts.

Families will be able to make figures based on their favourite characters from children’s TV shows, comedies and documentaries.

Entries from Uphill Primary School will be judged on Friday afternoon and displayed in the school garden.

Scarecrows will then be dotted around the village over the weekend.

The festival began 10 years ago and attracted more than 100 entries and the event has been growing ever since.

Village society chairman Stewart Castle said: “We are certain, yet again, to see a spectacular and impressive display of scarecrows for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Refreshments will be served in the Methodist church all day on Saturday.
