The winners have been revealed of a scarecrow competition which set out to find outstanding scarecrow designs.
The event, organised by Havering-atte-Bower Conservation Society (HABCOS), is for the village's residents.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the entries were judged by HABCOS and there were joint winners.
Lisa Dobson, of North Road, was recognised for her depiction of Rachael Blackmore, the jockey that won this year's Grand National.
The Taylor family, of Broxhill Road, also won for their “very artistic creation” of an exotic lady.

Lisa said: "Aintree racecourse is very close to my heart as it’s near to where I grew up in Liverpool.
"I’ve had great feedback from neighbours and friends saying that my lady jockey is brilliant, and a lot of people keep stopping in cars to look and take photos.”
Phil Date, a committee member of HABCOS, said: “The competition this year was fantastic.
