Slingsby Pumpkin Trail 2020

Thursday 29th – Saturday 31st October

It’s almost time for the first Slingsby Pumpkin Trail and we’ve been overwhelmed by the support that we’ve had from people wanting to take part in the trail – thank you.
If you would like to walk the trail and spot some spooky pumpkins, you can download and print the map (plus a page of spooky trail fun) here:

All of the houses on the trail will be displaying letters with their pumpkins which will make a Halloween phrase. Can you spot all of the letters on your walk?
As we mentioned in our last post, it would be great if we could give something back to the community and raise some money to go towards the Slingsby Play Area. There will be donation boxes along the trail route but if you would like to donate online, please visit our JustGiving page:

Please remember to adhere to the government social distancing guidelines and policies whilst on the trail to make it fun and safe for everyone.  This is a fun and friendly alternative to trick or treating for the community so we ask that you kindly please do not knock on doors or put bowls of sweets out.
So dust away the cobwebs from your fancy dress costumes (optional) and we hope that you have lots of fun and great half term week.
If you have any queries, please email me on [email protected] .
Thank you.
