A Halloween treasure hunt is being put on for children in Kettering this half-term – and it’s free to take part.

Kettering Town Council has organised the spooky trail off the back of its successful similar event at Easter.

To take part youngsters must collect a trail sheet from the library, which is the first stop, and follow the map around the town to find the hidden pumpkins and secret symbols.

When they have found all of the letters they can rearrange them to find the missing words and claim a delicious prize.

Chairman of the council’s markets and events committee, Cllr Craig Skinner (Con), said: “The Easter trail we ran earlier in the year was really successful – we had more than 300 children take part – so we hope lots of people will take part in our Halloween trail.

"As a town council we want to promote the town and get people into Kettering and enjoying what’s on offer.”
