Cullingworth set for ex-straw-dinary show
10:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
Final preparations are underway for a village’s scarecrow festival this weekend.
The theme for this year’s event in Cullingworth is ‘Cullywood’ – Hollywood comes to Cullingworth.
Local furniture business Pineoakio has entered fully into the spirit of the occasion with its own creation, put together by 23-year-old apprentice Lucy Thompson.
She has made A night at the Oscars with Mr Pineoakio, and he will be on show for both days of the festival this weekend.
Visitors will be able to browse the different scarecrow-builders’ imaginative, rustic efforts on minibus trips around the village.
Organisers are hoping the 11th annual scarecrow festival will beat last year’s total of entries and raise in excess of £1,000 for the Sue Ryder Manorlands hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Programmes cost £1. Call (01535) 272325 for details.
