Families have been getting into the mood for Hallowe'en by heading along to a pumpkin patch in Neilston.

Such was the demand for slots at Mill Park Pumpkin Patch, run by local farmer James Carswell, that the event was extended to include another weekend.

James runs the patch every year, helped by his son James.

As well as getting the chance to pick pumpkins, those who bought tickets enjoyed free parking, a play area for kids and some suitably spooky artwork.

James said: “There were so many people wanting tickets we had to spread the event over two weekends, as I wanted to make sure everyone had the chance to get a pumpkin.

“Every year, myself and my son James try to come up with different hay art for families to enjoy. This year, we had a witch.

“Despite the weather, it was a huge success. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the kids had lots of fun. My daughter-in-law also made balloon animals for the kids to take home.”
