A FARM between Whitchurch and Market Drayton will be open for pumpkin pickers this Hallowe'en.

Fordhall Farm, based on the A53, will open its doors from Saturday, October 23 to Sunday, October 31.

Youngsters are invited to step into the farm's foraging field to pick out their own pumpkins, help Pippa the Pipistrelle find her missing baby Echo, and head down to the newly restored Three Ponds area for a spooky stroll.

Fancy dress is welcomed and there will also be a selfie competition, with points to be won for those with fangs or a pair of wings.

Fordhall Farm community land initiative manager, Charlotte Hollins, said she was looking forward to welcoming people onto the farm.

She said: "Following on from last year, we hope we see many familiar and new faces popping up to celebrate Hallowe'en on the farm with us.

"All the profits from our family friendly half term activities go towards supporting our on-site community-based projects.

"We'll have a whole field full of pumpkins for you to forage for and to take home to carve into a lantern.

"The treat filled activity bag even has a guide for what to do with your pumpkin leftovers and reduce your environmental impact."

The half term activities at the farm are running from 10am to 3pm, and tickets cost £7.95 per person.

Accompanying adults and non-participating infants go free but still need a ticket.
