Paying tribute to key workers and the NHS this year’s Hoghton scarecrow event has a coronavirus theme.

More than 25 homes have taken place across Coupe Green and Hoghton.

All entry fees and donations collected from the scarecrow trail will go towards purchasing hand cream for NHS staff in Preston and South Ribble.
