A spooktacular event

Last year's event.

HARDIE Park in Stanford-le-Hope will hosts its annual family Halloween event on Saturday, 26 October between 11am and 3pm.

Tickets are currently on sale in the café at £3 each for the hunt around the park. Either side of the big weekend event there’s also a programme of affordable half-term activities to entertain the little ones over the two-week period including, Lego, pumpkin carving workshops, biscuit decorating and craft.

Rob Groves, from Hardie Park said: “Our annual Halloween Hunt is the big one, tickets are on sale in the café for £3 for the themed hunt, we are encouraging fancy dress which will be judged at the Ugly Bug Ball under canvas in the park.

“Local stallholders are supporting the event and bouncy castles with £5 unlimited bounce will make an appearance weather permitting. It’s always well supported and enjoyed by local families.

“Please come on down and enjoy some Hardie Park fun. The café manned by our staff team and volunteers will be open serving refreshments on the day.’ For full details of all events planned at Hardie Park you can visit www.friendsofhardiepark.co.uk or follow on social media channels @lovehardiepark.
