There will be some new faces appearing in the village at the end of week as locals prepares to host their annual event.

More than 20 scarecrows will be springing up across the length and breadth of Kinghorn for the popular fundraising event organised by Kinghorn in Bloom.

Members of the public have been getting creative to take part in the contest, competing for the title of best scarecrow in three categories - families and children, adults and businesses and clubs.
