ALL sorts of weird and wonderful characters will be on display in Holt over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

From Saturday 26 August to Monday 28 August, the village is staging its annual Holt Scarecrow Trail. This year’s theme is ‘A TV Character’.

This should fire the imagination of villagers, who are being invited to make everything from a vision of Poldark to a model of Peter Rabbit.

Organisers Christine Tucker and Lisa Wickes are hoping to attract more than 30 entries and raise over £700 for the Village Hall.

Christine said: “We are hoping for more entries this year. Last year we sold about 250 trails and raised £700.”

All entry forms should be returned to Christine Tucker by 10 August, at 281 The Common or by email to, or telephone 01225 782357.
