Join in the monstrously popular Halloween Trail at Yeovil County Park, Friday 27 October

The Countryside Rangers and their volunteers are once again hosting the monstrously popular Halloween Trail on Friday 27 October.  This is a fang-tastic opportunity to enjoy a fun day out in the beautifully autumnal setting of Ninesprings.

Pick up a trail leaflet from the frightful 'Friends of Yeovil Country Park' stand opposite Ninesprings Café, anytime between 11am and 2pm, and follow the pumpkin markers through the eerie woods.  Find the missing letters, which will be hidden at several marked pumpkin stops along the way, to help craft the witches spell.  Are you brave enough to follow the trail all the way to the end to find the witch?  Once you find her, be sure to tell her the missing word from her spell so she can use her cauldron to conjure up a prize.

A buggy friendly/little legs short route will be available and clearly signposted.  Don't worry, you won't miss out and you will still find all of the letters to help the witch cast her spell.

The Halloween Trail costs £2 per child and under-3s are free.  The trail will take around one hour to complete and the last entry will be at 2pm.  The Friends of Yeovil Country Park will be selling their personalised pencils for a minimum donation of 30p.  All proceeds from entries, the sale of pencils and knitted toys, will go back into organising future fun events at Yeovil Country Park.

Assistant Countryside Ranger, Kristy Davies said: ''The Halloween Trail promises to be a truly hair-raising day out for all ages!  The event organised by the team at Yeovil Country Park attracts a huge number of families and is no doubt our most popular trail event of the year. It's great to see everyone enjoying a fun day out in the fresh air!''

The Ninesprings Café will be open between 8am - 6pm for parents and children to get out of the cold and enjoy a hot drink before or after the trail.  Treat yourself to a pumpkin spice latte or a dark hot chocolate!
