MAY the straws be with you.

This Luke Skywalker scarecrow made by six-year-old Daniel Richardson and his brother Christopher came third in a summer holiday scarecrow making competition.

Daniel said: “We love Star Wars so we made a Luke Skywalker scarecrow.”

Other bird-scaring masterpieces included a holiday scarecrow in a straw hat enjoying a cocktail.

The competition was won by sisters Abi and Hannah Richardson, 14 and 11, and cousin Alex Gilbert who created an entire family of scarecrows at the beach, complete with sand, seagulls and a beach hut.

Organiser Karen Fysh, 51, who runs the Wootton and Dry Sandford Community Centre’s fundraising committee, said: “We are quite fragmented as community so we thought this would be a good way to bring everyone together.”

I drove past one lurking in a garage in Wootton; very impressive.
