Pumpkins, spooky stories and other fun activities
Cogges Manor Farm gardener Chris Munday has been working hard to produce a fine crop of pumpkins and squash in time for a week of Halloween and other holiday fun for all the family.
Some of the pumpkins will be on sale later during the week of activities, which run from Tuesday 24 October to Sunday 29 October.
Apple-bobbing, Jack-o-lanterns and live bats are just a few of the activities on offer and gruesome grub will be on sale in the haunted tea-room of Oxfordshire County Council museum near Witney.
