Halloween might not be happening in quite the same way this October but we bet your family still want to be thrilled and chilled during the Halloween and Half Term holiday!
Fortunately there’s lots going on to keep children (and mums & dads!) happy - from terrifying tales and spooky trails in all our country parks, frights in the forest and wizarding adventures to name but a few.
If Halloween isn't for you, there are plenty of non-Halloween events going on this half term too!
Check out the full list of hair-raising Halloween events here in this year's In North Notts Half Term & Halloween Events Guide.
I made a great discovery a couple of weeks ago when I was driving back home from a visit to Retford - a wonderful fruit and vegetable stall in the centre of Sutton cum Lound village. It was stocked with such an amazing array of fresh, seasonal vegetables, salads and fruits that I had to stop and buy some!

Need some ideas and inspiration? You'll find lots here!
