A popular scarecrow festival is coming back to Bolton.

Organisers are now taking entries for this year's event and they close on August 20.

If you would like to register a screcrow there is a £5 per household/business fee and you can be done by emailing kearsleyscarecrowfestival@hotmail.com including name, contact details and the category.

Information packs will then be sent out and families can create their scarecrows.
