Foxton Scarecrow Festival returned on Saturday as more than 50 scarecrows – from Harry Potter to Lady Macbeth – populated the village.
A variety of fictional favourites and famous faces brushed shoulders in the annual competition organised by St Laurence Church.
Harry Potter fans designed a number of 'scar-crows', including Harry himself disappearing onto Platform 9¾.
Paddington Bear, Willy Wonka, Fireman Sam and Spiderman could also be spotted in Foxton.
Fittingly, there was a strong environmental theme this year, with a display of Extinction Rebellion members protesting in support of the poor crows.
Visitors were treated to bacon butties, soup and home-made cakes, with performances from Foxton Singers and Foxton School choir, who gave a rendition of 'Sing' by Gary Barlow.
In total, £1,300 was raised for St Laurence Church.
