A ballet dancer, construction workers, and gardeners are just some of the creations on show at Mepal’s scarecrow festival.
The festival started on Saturday (September 4) and already has a number of entries – all of which are still on display around the village until Sunday (September 12).
Residents were asked to get creative and build a scarecrow to put on display outside their house or around the village.
There is no theme to the ‘traditional village fun’, meaning those involved can let their imaginations run free.
Sian Adomeit took part this year for her young children.
