Youngsters showed off their creepy creative sides at the annual pumpkin carving party held at Windsor Royal Station Shopping Centre on Saturday.

More than 400 children took part in the 13th annual pumpkin party to be held there.

They were able to design their own pumpkin carvings under the watchful eye of Deborah James and Sarah McAllister - the talented pair behind the Windsor Contemporary Arts Fair.

Sarah McAllister said “We were again amazed at the creative designs the children came up with."

The prize for best carved pumpkin went to Mya Lampton, 7 from Ealing who won a £80 Daniel Store Gift card.

Shopping centre manager Sue Watts said: “Despite the weather, we had a fantastic turnout as usual. There was some very creative pumpkin carving and fabulous fancy dress.”

The free event, run by the shopping centre and the Windsor, Eton and Ascot Town partnership, also featured Halloween-themed performances by children's entertainer Mr Marvel, a Halloween fancy dress fashion show and a Pumpkin Hunt with six professionally carved pumpkins strategically located throughout the town centre for participants to find.

The pumpkin hunt winners were Ella, Grace and Belle Etheridge aged 9, 7 and 4 from Windsor who won a Windsor Monopoly Board game

All the afternoon's winners were presented with their prizes by Royal Borough Deputy Mayor Cllr Gary Muir.

The under fives fancy dress winners were Torey Martin from Slough and Darcie Rose-Price from Englefield Green, both four, who won a Play Doh set.

Winners in the five to eight category were Roni Lisak Zabotinski, five and Sarah Lisak Zabotinski, eight, both from Windsor who won Operation Escape Room Games.

Nine and over winners were Alice Chambers, 10 from Heathrow and Lacie Porter, 10 from Slough who won Pictionary Air Games.
