It’s all play on Pumpkin Day
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.
