Scarecrows have been appearing across Belper town centre as part of a competition linked to an event in the town this summer.

Organisers of the Belper Goes Green ECO Festival are hoping people will create scarecrows in their gardens and shop windows all over Belper to bring along to their eco-themed event at Belper Rugby Club in mid-May.

Festival-goers will then be asked to vote for their favourite. To help promote the idea a ‘Where’s Wally Scarecrow’ has been appearing in random locations across the town this week. To enter email your name, address, phone number and the name of your scarecrow to or phone/text 07443 650 039
