FROSTS of Brampton's autumn festival got under way during half-term week with lots of mouth-watering activities for families.

In preparation for Hallowe'en, children got the chance to hone their pumpkin-carving skills at the daily pumpkin-scooping workshops. The scary designs were then lit by a battery-powered tea light and given to the childen to take home for Hallowe'en.

The week finished with a celebration of autumn fare with the Flavours of Autumn festival. Apple, pear and pumpkin tasters were all on offer as were Frosts' speciality soups, chutneys and pies.

Centre manager Angela Wilson said: "This was the first autumn event of its kind at Frosts and the response has been great.

"We want to bring the Flavours of Autumn back next year and make it even bigger."
