Halloween pumpkin carving at The Donkey Sanctuary

If there are lots of pumpkin lanterns on display around Sidmouth this Halloween, it could be thanks to The Donkey Sanctuary.
A workshop was set up at the attraction during half-term week, enabling children to design and make their own jack o'lanterns to take home.
They were helped to hollow out their pumpkin, draw a face on it, and carefully cut out the features.
There was also a Halloween-themed trick or treat game in the grounds, marked by a trail of pumpkins.
Participants were able to discover 'treats' that would keep donkeys healthy and happy, and 'tricks' which were not so good for them.

The Donkey Trick or Treat trail runs until Sunday, November 3, at a cost of £3 per person.
Visitors can also explore the maze, take an autumnal walk through the woods, and perhaps wander down the Weston valley to the sea.
