How will you mark Halloween this year?
Coronavirus has cancelled many things, but a pumpkin trail in Bury St Edmunds will give families the opportunity to dress up and have some fun.
Taking place on the Moreton Hall estate on Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31, pumpkins carved with ghoulish faces will decorate streets to mark the spooky occasion.

She said: “This is hopefully going to be a fun alternative to trick or treating that is open to every household whether young or old.
“I wanted to organise a fun community event that everyone can take part in. It’s also an opportunity to dress up if you wanted to as you walk around the trail.”
