Pumpkin trail proves a hit
A town-centre trail designed to get families exploring Altrincham town centre was a runaway success over October half term, with over 1000 children picking up goodie bags and following the map to find specially decorated pumpkins around the town.
Businesses were delighted with the response, which took visitors to all corners of Altrincham, and introduced them to new retailers in the process.
Excellent feedback was received via both social media and the returned forms, with the vast majority of participants rating the trail 10/10, and this comment from Lyn Denny typical of many:
“Fab Pumpkin Trail today! Fun for kids and great to visit shops I didn’t know existed. Thanks friendly shopkeepers and Altrincham BID”.

“The last time Altrincham ran a school holiday activity – the 2016 Easter Egg Hunt – there were approximately 150 participants, so we were blown away to see such an increase in the number of children taking part this time.
It really demonstrates the appetite for family focused events in Altrincham during school holidays, and our Marketing & Events Group will be looking at how we can build on this success in 2017.”
