Kings, fishermen and disciples have caused families to hunt high and low through the streets of Backwell in an attempt to complete a treasure hunt.

Creative villagers turned scarecrows into characters from the Bible and dotted them round outside homes and in community buildings for families to find.

Armed with maps, families tracked down the figures and worked out their occupations before handing in their completed forms.

The trail finished on Sunday and the winners were announced after a service at St Andrew’s Church.
