Stoke Ferry Halloween family events for pub campaign
Stoke Ferry is holding a Jack O’Lantern Lightshow and Village Quiz Trail in aid of the Save the Blue Bell Pub campaign at 7pm on October 31.
The village is also staging a family quiz trail for October half-term week
The village is encouraging its residents and households in surrounding villages to come together to produce an enchanting lightshow, so children can still experience the excitement of Halloween despite the usual trick and treating.
Pupils from All Saints School will each receive a leaflet featuring a quiz with fiendishly fun family clues to get them safely out and about, solving the clues around Stoke Ferry during half-term week.
And every household is being encouraged to join in by carving a pumpkin. At exactly 7pm the bells of All Saints Church will ring out, the sign for all the lanterns to be lit in gardens, porches and windows across our little corner of South West Norfolk, illuminating the darkness with candlelight and hearty cheers.
The Save The Blue Bell campaign, with support from the Plunket Foundation’s, MORE THAN A PUB project, is inviting any family or carers with children, to register to receive a treat, safely delivered to their doorstep on Halloween.
If you live in Stoke Ferry, Wretton, Boughton, Whittington or Wereham, simply email email@example.com or visit the Blue Bell’s Twitter or Facebook pages and give your address and the number of children in your household.
No names or other personal details will be required.
Donations to support the event and the campaign can be made through donation boxed at the Stoke Ferry Corner Shop and Bonnetts Hardware, where leaflets are also available.
Sandra McNeill, Save the Blue Bell campaign team member, said: “We are encouraging all households to take part in our Jack O’Lantern lightshow.
“It is a wonderful way to shine a thousand lights and give our local children a safe but special Halloween.”
