Golden Valley School Association is running the scarecrow hunt to raise funds for the primary school.

Families can pick up a map and hunt around the town to find the 44 characters.

This year's theme is Around The World In 80 Days and scarecrow designers were encouraged to use recycled materials for their entries.

People are invited to guess the country each scarecrow represents and those who name the most countries correctly will be entered into a prize draw.

The trail started on Saturday and families spent the weekend tracking down the scarecrows.

The event runs until Sunday and maps are available for £2.50 from Coates House and Simply Green Zero Waste, in High Street, or the Royal Mail Delivery Office in Crown Glass Shopping Centre.
