Treats from a family pumpkin that bears a resemblance to a nasty 2020 trick


Hardwick mum and son find way of celebrating Halloween in a COVID friendly way

A Banbury family have found a fun way to make the most of Halloween this year in a safe way that reflects life under COVID-19.   Even better, socially distanced treats for trick or treaters have been catered for.

Hannah Mitchell and her son Jason have created a carved pumpkin that has a remarkable resemblance to an image we regularly see on our televisions at the moment.   But unlike that, there is no nasty trick as the pumpkin simply offers tasty treats in the form of lollypops.

Now other children near the family in Hardwick can benefit from Hannah and Jason’s hard work as they have put the pumpkin outside so local children can help themselves.  

Hannah said: “My son’s nan dropped the lollypops round about a week ago.   When I saw they were eyeballs I suggested to Jason that we use it for the pumpkin for Halloween.   That way we can pop them all in and leave it at the top of the garden so that local children could still grab themselves a treat in a COVID friendly way.

“No contact is needed between us or them”.

Hannah admits that she loves Halloween.   Her daughter is just 12 months old and a little too young to join in, but eight-year-old Jason gets involved in all the fun.   Hannah said: “We’re heading off to the Abingdon Spooktacular event, another COVID friendly way to celebrate all hallows Eve.

“Dressing up is optional for this event, but I’m a big kid who loves Halloween and have naturally passed that down to my children.”
