Get in the spooky spirit of things at Yeo Valley Woodland next week.
The annual Halloween event at the community woodland in Barnstaple is being organised by North Devon Council, the Children’s Summer Club and Friends of Yeo Valley Woodland.
The event takes place on Saturday 29 October, with pumpkin carving from 1-3pm, followed by a spooky walk and fancy dress competition from 6-8pm.
Executive Member responsible for parks, leisure and culture, Councillor Dick Jones, says: “This is always a very popular event for local families and is a great opportunity for people who haven’t visited this wonderful community space before, to find out what all the fuss is about. Enjoy a day of spooky fun in our award-winning woodland.”
Local ward member for Barnstaple Yeo Valley ward, Councillor Joy Cann, said: “The groups have worked hard together over previous years to provide the event and I’m delighted it’s happening again this year. I hope it will be well supported by the community – it really is good fun for the whole family, I encourage everyone to come along and join in the fun.”
Local ward member for Barnstaple Yeo Valley ward, Councillor Ian Roome, said: “This is always a great annual event. I hope as many from the local community as possible come along, it’s a chance to get into the spirit of Halloween, dress up and explore the woodlands.”
The spooky walk is free, with a suggested donation of £2 for pumpkin carving. Yeo Valley Woodland is located at Silverwood Heights, Barnstaple. There is no parking at the woodland, but visitors coming by car are advised to park carefully in Derby Road and use the entrance beyond the Kingdom Hall.Posted in: Leisure
