There were superheroes among the scarecrows and maize at one Malpas farm last week, with plenty enjoying the chance to pick their own pumpkin.

Ivy House Farm, in Dodd’s Lane, Malpas, has built a reputation for providing a fun way of picking pumpkins for Halloween, which was yesterday.

There were scarecrows of Spiderman, The Flash and The Joker, among others, as kids, both little and large, made their way around the Maize Maze.

Attractions at the event included a bouncy castle, maze, cafe and of course the acres of pumpkin patches with wheelbarrows provided – which was just as much fun for some of the smaller visitors.
