15 photos of 'Saturday night at the movies' themed scarecrow festival in closeknit Burnley community

Rain showers could not put a dampener on the annual Rosegrove Neighbourhood Watch scarecrow festival

This year the theme was ‘the movies’ and residents rose to the challenge, creating a selection of characters from films in scarecrow form.

Held last weekend there was also a fun day hosted on Owen Street park which included children’s rides and stalls, Merlin’s Magic Show and a chance to meet some birds of prey.

This is the third scarecrow festival the Rosegrove Neighbourhood Watch has hosted. The first one was held in 2020 in a bid to boost community spirit at the start of the pandemic.
