A SCARECROW festival will hope to hit the right note when residents' creative skills are put to the test next month.

The Millom and Haverigg Scarecrow Festival will return with a new theme after the success of last year's sporting heroes outing, which featured a number of Olympic medalists and famous faces.

Scarecrows will appear around the town and villages over a three-day period to pay homage to musical heroes.

Millom mayor Angela Dixon said: "We need to revive lots of things in Millom and get the community interested in these things.

"This event is always just a nice bit of fun instead of a boring Autumn day.

"I love it. I always love things to do with the community."

The festival will take place on Friday October 6 until Sunday October 8.

Entry forms are available from Millom Council Centre, in St Georges Road, with the closing date on September 29.
