Halesworth Scarecrow festival ran from Saturday, October 21, to Saturday October 28.

The event raised £529 which will go towards the festive light fund for the town’s Christmas celebrations this year.

Organiser Karen Prime said: “It was absolutely fantastic and so nice to see many of the town’s businesses make such an effort.

“The town was buzzing all week but the main thing is that the children were able to enjoy themselves during half term.”

The Mr Men scarecrows, belonging to Densons Jewellers, delighted visitors both young and old throughout the week and were voted as the best in town.

This year’s event also featured a popular pumpkin treasure hunt. Eight-year-old Alexander Collier won the top prize of £50.

Alexander also earned the opportunity to switch on the festive lights in Halesworth on November 25.

More information about this year’s festival and future events can be found on the ‘Halesworth Scarecrow Week’ Facebook page.
