MANY Somerset residents will have put their Halloween plans on hold, but one town is determined to make this year’s spooky occasion memorable.

A Halloween Window Wanderland is taking place in Frome this month to help residents “build connections” with neighbours.

The event is being held to remind people to check on their neighbours, and the Neighbourhood Network Group are offering a free resource pack including top tips, sugar paper, tissue paper, tracing paper and glue.

Mayor of Frome Anita Collier said: “As it's getting chillier and the nights are drawing in, now is the best time to check in on your neighbours.

“Taking part in a street Halloween display is a great way to stay in touch and build connections with those nearest to you while following current social distancing guidance.”

Frome Town Council are also offering workshops to make your display stand out. These will take place on Saturday, October 17 between 10am and 11am, and Thursday, October 22, from 4pm until 5pm.

The Window Wanderland is set to take place on October 31 until November 1 from 5.30pm until 8.30pm.
