THERE have been some unusual new residents popping up in Tadley and Baughurst in the last week.

Following the success of the inaugural Tadley and Baughurst Scarecrow Trail last year, the scheme has returned with some even more imaginative designs.

From Willy Wonka to the Joker, artistic scarecrows have been dotted around various businesses and homes in both Tadley and Baughurst.

This year there are 10 more scarecrows to find, making a total of 39 new residents across the town and village.

The theme of the trail is “the good, the bad and the ugly", with each scarecrow being allocated a letter which would reveal the answer to a puzzle.

A map to find all the various locations costs £1 from Tadley Library, and upon finishing the trail entrants can vote for their favourite scarecrows.

All the money raised will go to supporting Tadley Citizen Advice Bureau.

The trail will continue until Saturday.
