A FREE Halloween party with a difference is being held at Bicton College on Friday October 31.

The Halloween hedge party is being held as part of Devon Hedge Week - a week-long event promoted by the Devon Hedge Group, Devon County Council and the Devon Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group, which includes a variety of events for all ages but is designed particularly for families.

Bicton countryside lecturer Jamie Moxey said: "The day will have a Halloween flavour and weather permitting, we will be running a haystack making activity, mask making, apple picking and juice making and we'll be decorating a hedge.

"We hope children will bring along a pumpkin or turnip lantern and we will give prizes for all those that make the effort.

"We will be making some small camp fires should anyone wish to bring some marshmallows or sausages to cook."

The Halloween Hedge Day runs from 10am to 3pm and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Those attending are advised to wear old all-weather clothing, boots and gloves, and bring a picnic or food to cook.
