Cllr Eric Ley, Lead Member for parks said: "Last year's Hallowe'en event was a great success and this year is likely to be just as good. With fancy dress, pumpkin carving and a nature walk rounded off with a warming barbecue, this is a great community event for all the family to enjoy."

People taking part in the night walk are urged to wear sensible footwear and a coat and to bring a torch. Children taking part in the events must be accompanied by an adult. No parking is available at the site.

Sponsorship forms for the evening walk are available from Frankmarsh Stores which is supporting the event.

All proceeds will go to the Friends of Yeo Valley Community Woodland to help fund further site improvements.
