A popular scarecrow festival raised over £500 for its community as it returned for an eighth year.
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.”
