Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

SCARY sto­ries in the cel­lars, mak­ing pump­kin lanterns, arts and crafts for chil­dren, a trea­sure hunt and other au­tum­nal at­trac­tions will all be avail­able at God­in­ton House on Sun­day. Pump­kin Day has be­come a tra­di­tional way of end­ing the sea­son at the tourist venue, with the em­pha­sis on fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment. This year any child who ar­rives in fancy dress will re­ceive a prize. There are au­tum­nal colours on show in the gar­dens and the tea room will be serv­ing pump­kin soup for lunch. Nick Sand­ford, man­ager of the God­in­ton es­tate, said: “Pump­kin Day is a great way to cel­e­brate half term and au­tumn as the clocks go back.” En­trance is £2 for chil­dren and £4 for adults.
