The Three Tuns Pub in Fen Drayton have launched scarecrow competition to raise money for the NHS.
Pub owner Francis Barreto got the idea from a local resident and all money raised will go to the NHS Charities COVID-19 Appeal.
Entry starts today (April 16) on The Three Tuns Pub webpage and there is a £2 entry fee.
All scarecrows need to be up, outside the houses no later than April 23, which is St George’s Day, and they can be of a famous person, a cartoon character, a favourite pet, historical figure or even a self portrait.
The resident then needs to take a picture of the scarecrow and upload it onto The Three Tuns website.
Anyone can enter, but the winner will be a child aged 16 or under.
