Each Halloween it is a tradition on our Touring Site to give each of our clients a pumpkin to carve and a candle to display outside their caravan. This year we also included a Halloween Activity Fun Pack with pictures to colour, puzzles and quizzes. On the eve of Halloween we had a visit from ‘trick or treaters’ superbly dressed as scary skeletons!! (Accompanied by their brother)! Our guests joined in the fun, there were some wonderfully carved pumpkins on display!
The following day the now redundant pumpkins were taken down to our wood called the ‘Hollies’ (a short walk turning left out of the campsite, walking down the hill). We broke up the pumpkins and arranged them carefully off the ground on a pile of wood for the birds and animals to feed on them. We were particular not to place them on the ground as we have been told that pumpkins are not good for hedgehogs. Whilst out for a walk with your dog if you tread quietly you may be lucky to see an animal or bird enjoying an autumn feast!
