PARENTS and children from Ingrow Primary School in Keighley have been busy making their own contributions for the Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival, which starts tomorrow (Saturday 11 August) and runs to the 19th.
The youngsters and their mums - and a grandma - were invited to a scarecrow-making session organised by the school's parental support worker Sue Hodgkinson and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) as part of its work to encourage people from urban areas to visit the National Park.
With a little help from Jenny Haworth from Kettlewell, they made two child-size scarecrows and six adults in a variety of poses - two walking, a couple on a bench and two elderly people in a garden.
And the final results of their handiwork will be on show on the village green during the event.
Catherine Kemp, the YDNPA's Outreach Officer, said: "The session gives the children and their parents the chance to get out into the countryside and become part of what is a traditional event. The scarecrows they made are fantastic and they had a whale of a time."
