Yate Shopping Centre held a special event for children in the build up to the spooky Halloween season. 

On Tuesday, October 30, in the centre of the shopping centre there was a stall set up for pumpkin carving.

The session took place between 11.00am and 4.00pm, with dozens of people taking part in the free event.

On their Facebook page, the centre announced it would go on until the pumpkin stocks ran out.

One attendee later thanked the centre on the Facebook post, saying: "Thought this was brilliant today," they said

"My girls thoroughly enjoyed and the staff were friendly and very helpful."
