Scarecrows of all shapes and sizes are set to appear across Epping for an annual celebration in June.

Organisers of Epping in Bloom’s 'Scarecrow Weekend' are encouraging residents to get creative and showcase their straw-stuffed designs outside their homes between Saturday June 8 and Sunday June 9.

Visitors will be able to follow the scarecrow trail having collected a scarecrow map from the Market Garden Terrace next to the Marks and Spencer store, off High Street, on both days.

Run by volunteers, Epping in Bloom aims to motivate people to plant floral displays and maintain the greenery within the community.
