THE second Insch Scarecrow Hunt gets underway this weekend.

Families and householders around the village have been busy getting their scarecrows made and in the region of 70 are due to be displayed in and around the village from Saturday until Friday, October 23.

Everyone is urged to get out and about during the event to hunt for the Scarecrows.

Treasure hunt sheets will be available from the Church hall on Saturday between 10am to 3pm and at the DIY. shop from 10am until 5pm.

On Sunday forms will be available at the Church hall from noon to 3pm and on Monday and the Tuesday from the DIY. shop from 9am to 5pm.

People completing the treasure hunt will also vote for their favourite scarecrow across a number of different categories.

Over the weekend, the Station Hotel is opening specially from noon to 3pm to serve teas, coffees, freshly baked scones, various cakes and fancy pieces as well as light lunches.

The Reverend Dr Kay Gauld says the scarecrow hunt is a great way for families to pass some time in the October holidays.
