Hinderwell and Port Mulgrave invaded by scarecrows - here are the winners

A scarecrows invasion has taken over Hinderwell and Port Mulgrave.

Tuesday, 23rd July 2019, 3:07 pm

The colourful characters are part of a week-long festival, with the scarecrows made by the residents of both villages and displayed in their gardens.

They do all this to raise money for the air ambulance and various village groups.

It is free for visitors to go and see all the creations.

The scarecrows – one of which is a tribute to Hinderwell’s England footballer Beth Mead – are out until 4pm on Sunday.
