Eye-catching creations will take over Acklington this weekend when the village holds its annual scarecrow trail.

The event, which has proved very popular in recent years, takes place on Saturday and the scarecrows will be on display from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

The best place to start the trail is at Acklington Village Hall, where maps can be bought for £1, with proceeds going to Acklington’s St John the Divine Parish Church.

Also in the hall will be tombola, plants and bottle stalls, as well as coffees, snacks and homemade food, including plated lunches.
