Cumbrian village’s scary trail

THERE will be a few famous faces in Wetheral this weekend – but they won’t scare away the locals.

New faces: Wetheral’s scarecrow trail

The annual scarecrow trail starts on Saturday, with a celebrity theme.

Organisers said there have so far been at least 25 entries and they expect more over the coming days.

The scarecrows will be up from 10am on Saturday, with locations including the parish church – where there will be an art exhibition – the Crown Hotel, Fantails, Alan’s Hairdresser’s and the village hall. A number of houses are also going to have some ‘celebrities’ standing outside.

Prizes will be awarded for the best scarecrows with donations from The Crown Hotel, Fantails, The Wheatsheaf and The Posting Pot.

The trail is part of Wetheral Arts Week, which lasts for 10 days.

Organisers said the festival would have something for everyone with a village variety show on May 3, as well as a cabaret evening featuring string quartet Men in Hats on May 10. Both take place in the village hall. Maps for the scarecrow trail will be available from the Crown Hotel, village shop and Holy Trinity Church. For more details call 01228 562685.

Older. They've come through the ranks, learned their craft - timeless

Young blood - always listening out for new music

New artists are usually X Factor or BGT groomed. They last five minutes. Not for me
