A scarecrow walk and open gardens event will be held in Long Lee and Thwaites Brow, Keighley, for the third year.

The village society is organising the event on June 29 with refreshments in the village hall.

This year the theme of the scarecrows will be sport, particularly the Tour de France, and the organisers are looking for entries.

Last year’s involved eight scarecrows on display around the village, including Kate Middleton and her newborn child.

The village society will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, May 14, at 7pm in the village hall.

Anyone interested in making scarecrows or opening their gardens to the public should contact June Keeler via jemkeeler@virginmedia.com.
