STAFF from Barleylands Farm Park will be holding Scarecrow Story Time at Maldon library this week.

At this interactive, free event, which is taking place between 11am and 12 noon on Saturday, children and their families will be able to learn all about scarecrows.

Children will enjoy rhymes, activities and stories and find out how some amazing scarecrows help farmers grow the food we need.
