Knutsford packed with ghouls for popular Pumpkin Path

TOWN centre shops have been thanked for supporting a spectacularly spooky Pumpkin Path trail.

The town centre was packed with spooks and spectres for the popular trail on Wednesday evening, which ran between 4pm and 7pm and was organised by Knutsford Town Council.

The event saw youngsters and their parents scour shops and restaurants to find 11 carved pumpkins spelling out ‘Pumpkin Path’ before submitting their entries to the Heritage Centre’s spooky post box.

A huge variety of retailers decorated their windows, including Pizza Express, Oxfam, Town and Country, Lockton’s, The OId Sessions House and Zo and Co, and people could vote for their favourite.

Sandra Curties, town centre manager, said: “We hope everyone had a lovely time – the weather was really kind, it was really busy and we had good fun.

“We would like to thank the volunteers from Knutsford and District Lions and Knutsford Hosts – we had a couple of students from Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust helping out, which was really nice -and our town councillors.

“Thanks to all the retailers – they were so many that really pushed the boat out and did loads of lovely window displays.

“We would like to thank you all for staying open in Princess Street, the market hall, Minshull Street and King Street – it was great.

Sandra also thanked Event Buddha for organising the traffic management, Greg, Lyn and Craig for the spooky Wallwood characters, local choir Knutsford Beats for entertaining the crowds and Fuchsia School of Dancing.
