    Our 'Night Forest' Halloween activities for families were great fun this year. Pumpkins were carved, spooky stories were told by our own Winnie Witch round a roaring campfire, and the procession through the pumpkins lined along the woodland was the perfect way to finish the evening. Our event sold out quickly and we hope to run even more Night Forest evenings next year.
