Children certainly got into the spirit of Halloween this year with a cooking up a storm and growing pumpkins.

Children took to the kitchen for Halloween at Churwell Community Centre on Friday to cook up some spooky treats.

The event invited youngsters along on Friday to the School of Cook’s first ever workshop to take part in the fun.

The classes are suitable for children aged two to preschool and provide the opportunity for parents to spend some quality time with their children, introducing nutritional information, tastes of the week, a sing-song and taking home what you and your children make.

They also have a preschool cookery class each Friday during term-time from 10am-11.30am at Churwell Community Centre and will be holding a special Christmas workshop on Monday December 21 from 10am-11.30am.

And for little Gracie Ingleson, seeing her pumpkin go from being planted to carved was a special treat.

Four-year-old Gracie, from Morley, returned to the pumpkin patch with her dad John, mum Hayley and little brother Freddie after winning a raffle to plant the fruit with Cbeebies favourite, Mr Bloom.

Months later, she dug up her pumpkin and asked expert carver Christian Russell for her produce to be carved into the scariest face possible.

Gracie’s dad John, who works at Leeds General Infirmary, said: “It’s been absolutely brilliant. She just wanted it to be carved into the scariest face possible - that was the ambition.”
