Get ready to follow the trail through the village at this year's festival.

It’s that time of year again when Gildersome becomes flooded with visitors - and scarecrows!

Gildersome Scarecrow Festival takes place on Sunday June 21 at 10am-6pm and promises to be every bit as entertaining as last year’s event.

The parish council is asking everyone who wishes to take part, by making a scarecrow, to register now.

This year, due to a number of requests, the competition is open to people living in other parts of Morley. Just register your entry so that your scarecrow can be added to the trail map.

Please contact Coun Kathy Cook on 0113 2530667 or Coun Pat May on 0113 2537019 with your details.

There is no particular theme so the scope for ideas is unlimited. The cut-off date to register is Friday May 22, in order that the trail brochure can be prepared.

You can also enter online via the parish council website www.gildersomeparishcouncil.co.uk.

It is hoped this year brings another fantastic festival, so don’t forget to register your scarecrow now!
