It feels like a tradition older than time, and it is back again for another year.

Driving through Rainow is always pleasant, but especially in the summertime.

This July will see the return of the Scarecrow Fortnight and Rainow Church Fete.

This year, the multi-faceted event will be raising money for The Christie Macclesfield, which opened six months ago.

Money will also be raised for Rainow causes such as the Church, which has recently been refurbished, and is being celebrated with a concert this weekend.

Participating homes and organisations must theme their scarecrow around a nearby pub.

Expect Robin Hood and his merry men to be clad in green across the pretty Macclesfield village, given one of the pubs takes the name from the English legend.

Even defunct Hurdsfield-Rainow pub The George and Dragon gets a look in with the themed scarecrows.
