FREE spooky pumpkin trail coming to Upton-upon-Severn for Halloween and half-term

PLENTY of Halloween fun is in store when a spooky pumpkin trail arrives in Upton-upon-Severn next Friday and Saturday, October 29 and 30.

The free event is being hosted by Upton upon Severn Tourist Information Centre (TIC) and challenges participants to find 15 pumpkins with ghoulish faces on them which have been hidden around the town.

Children can find a letter on each one to spell out a word and win a prize.

Trail sheets can be collected from the TIC at the Pepperpot from 10am next Friday and completed answer sheets need to be returned by 5pm on the Saturday.

Fancy dressed is encouraged, but not essential.

Coun Daniel Walton, Malvern Hills District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Tourism and Economic Development, said: “It is the first ever pumpkin trail we have held in Upton and the town centre is a perfect location for this kind of activity.”
