Attended Halloween Horrors during half term had a great time, doing the halloween trail and pumpkin carving the kids loved it. Great to be able to go out entertain the kids get fresh air and it was all free. We will go there more often it's a great local walk and the kids can run about. Also loving buggy fit there keep up the good work and Thank you my little boy is enjoying walking and exploring

For the second year in a row my children and I have taken part in the 'Halloween Horrors' at Dinnington comunity woodland. On both occasions it has been a well organised, interesting and fun afternoon that all the family have enjoyed. My children especially liked the fact that they came away with pumpkins that they were able to help make and the quiz along the way was entertaining for all ages. This is a free activity which is always a bonus - but if you were to place a small charge of ■2 it would still be very good value for an afternoon of family fun. A huge thankyou to the Rangers for organising it and we will look forward to participating again next year.

What a fantastic event. I am surprised that t5here was no charge. This is good,but the current climate dictates a charge for the event i feel to continue. I have certainly no problems in a charge for further events being levied!
