Volunteers gathered at Wick Hall last Tuesday to take part in a scarecrow-making workshop.

The scarecrows made there will join others made by Littlehampton businesses and organisations located around the Wick area.

Organised by Wick Village Traders Association, the festival will run from Saturday, August 25, to Sunday, September 2.

Collect a map from Wick Information Centre, opposite the shops in Wick Street, and take a tour of the area to see the handmade scarecrows.
