PLOTHOLDERS at Northfields Allotments in West Ealing are preparing to hold their third annual Halloween Pumpkin Trail on Saturday, October 27, 3-7pm.

They are inviting the community to join them as London’s oldest allotments play host to phantoms and witches, all eerily lit with Jack-O’-Lanterns.

Ghoulish treats on the day will include a barbecue, a bar serving beer and mulled wine, plus tea and cakes.

Those wishing to get into the spirit are encouraged to wear their spookiest Halloween outfits.

Entry is FREE, though donations are welcome.

Access will be through the main gates towards the north end of Northfield Avenue (opposite Dean Court).

Visitors will also be able to join the trail via the south gate at Occupation Road or via Mattock Lane where the trail runs down Radbourne Walk.

There will be a buggy park, accessible through the main gates, and Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead.

Christina Fox, chairman of Ealing Dean Allotment Society, said: “This will be our third Halloween Pumpkin Trail. It is always an extremely popular event, with more than 2,500 people coming through the gates.

“Northfields Allotments are hugely valued by the community here in Ealing and the popularity of our events underlines the importance of green spaces in this built-up part of West London.”
