Homages to Captain Sir Tom Moore and NHS workers were featured as a popular scarecrow festival returned.
The Martham Scarecrow Festival returned at the weekend, with homes across the village taking part.
The event, which was postponed in 2020, was also raising money for the local community with dozens of scarecrows and decorated houses, as well as a number of garden and garage sales.
Organiser Laura Masterson said: "The festival has gone really well under the circumstances, and we have had quite a few people around.
"We have had over 40 scarecrows, including Captain Tom which has been everyone's favourite, and a spitfire made out of pompoms and resting on a bed of 1,200 knitted poppies.

"Whatever we raise will be put back into the village to see what people want.
