NO reputable witch can celebrate Halloween without a cauldron.

Which is why organisers of a fun day at a Blackpool park are appealing for someone to lend them a suitable cooking vessel for conjuring up magic spells.

The Friends of Devonshire Rock Gardens are holding a day of spooky fun on Saturday October 29.

And Coun Christine Wright, who is helping co-ordinate the event, said: “I have got most things in my kitchen – but not a cauldron!

“We’re looking for something about the size of a small oil drum and wondered if anyone might have something they could lend us.

“There is a derelict shelter in the park which we’re hoping to restore eventually, but for the Halloween event it is going to be lit up in green light and everyone will be dressing up as witches.

“A cauldron would be the finishing touch.”

As well as fancy dress, there will be a mock-up of some medieval stocks, ghost story-telling and a visit by insect and pond life expert Alan Bennett.

Local schools are also being invited to submit Halloween-themed poems and pictures for a competition, and prizes will be handed out.

Coun Wright added: “The Illuminations team are going to light up the gardens so it should look quite magical and we’re hoping lots of local families will come along and enjoy the day.

“We’re also appealing to anyone who can donate prizes.”

The event, named Happy Halloween Happenings, starts at 2.30pm.

Anyone who can donate a cauldron or prizes is asked to contact Coun Wright on 07779 817271.
