The annual Scarecrow Festival and Fair takes place in the village of Wray from Saturday, April 26 to Monday, May 5.
During the festival, visitors are able to walk through the village and discover the hundreds of scarecrows made by local residents.
There were no entry fees during the festival, apart from the Bank Holiday fair, and there is ample parking (£1.50) around the village.
At the Bank Holiday fair there will be a number of stalls and attractions, including chainsaw carving, a birds of prey display, duck herding and a fell race and members of the local fire and rescue team will be demonstrating how to rescue people from a crashed car.
Wray Village is located in the Lune Valley between Lancaster and Ingleton.
STUDENTS have been advising Westmorland General Hospital on how it can provide more cost-effective and ‘greener’ heating.
Sixth-formers from Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy in Lancaster worked with Morecambe Bay NHS Trust on the ‘Hands On’ project for eight months.
The pupils investigated the hospital’s annual energy consumption to see how it could be done differently to cut carbon emissions and suggested using local suppliers as one option.
