Time to brave the blustery weather and get pumpkin picking, a fun activity to entertain the kids this Halloween.

The Autumn and Halloween grub from Bettys is a wicked enough reason for us to gather up our ghouls, put our feet up in front of the fire and keep all tricks outdoors… Our favourite has to be the Halloween Chocolate Cake filled with chocolate buttercream.
