Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

THE TEAM be­hind Rainow Church Scare­crow Fort­night are get­ting ready for this year’s event.

More than 70 themed scare­crows will go on dis­play around the com­mu­nity at the event this sum­mer.

Cre­ations made by res­i­dents will be on show along streets, gar­dens and rooftops in the vil­lage for the an­nual event.

Amy War­ring­ton, who is sec­re­tary of Rainow Church Scare­crow Com­mit­tee, said: “It’s a com­mu­nity event in the coun­try vil­lage of Rainow on the out­skirts of Mac­cles­field in which over 70 scare­crows are dis­played through­out the whole vil­lage.

“They will all be linked to this year’s theme of ‘High Days and Hol­i­days’.

“It is in con­junc­tion with the ever pop­u­lar Scare­crow Teas in Rainow Church Cen­tre which re­ally brings to­gether the com­mu­nity as we raise money for lo­cal char­i­ties.”

The quirky cre­ations can be seen from Satur­day, July 9 to Sun­day, July 24.

The scare­crows will be judged and the win­ners an­nounced at the Rainow Fete which takes place on Satur­day, July 16.

The fete will have a pa­rade and a host of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing a dog show, bouncy cas­tle and fancy dress.
