MEMBERS of the Tickhill Together group are on the look out for help and ideas for this year’s Scarecrow Festival.

May 5 has been set as the big day for this year’s event - which is the third since the village group begun putting the festival on.

The committee is calling for anyone who wants to take part to get in touch with group secretary Trish Marsh on 01302 742197.

Activities on the day, which will includes prizes for the best scarecrows, will run from 10am to 5pm.

Entries are now available for £2 from the Market Place shops. The closing date for scarecrow entries is March 31.

The festival has become a popular part of the town’s calendar.
