Halloween Pumpkin Hunt Hastings


The first ever Swelling Matters Halloween Pumpkin Hunt will be coming to Whitstable in just a few days, and we cannot wait to see the weird and wonderful costumes you will create to go trick-or-treating in style. For the best dressed, we have a whole host of prizes from the participating businesses within Whitstable who are not only offering some ghoulish goodies for the children themselves but also a few treats for parents and carers too!

We want to see ghosts, ghouls, zombies, witches, cats, vampires, mummies, werewolves, skeletons and more! The more creative your costumes are, the better your chances are of winning a monstrously wicked prize! If you can, why not get crafting and rock something original and home-made?

Here’s the list of prizes up for grabs….

1. A three-course lunch for four (with a bottle of wine) at Pearson's Arms Pub

2. One month 5* family membership, 1 x family roller-skating voucher, 1 x family swim voucher from Whitstable Swimming Pool/Active Life

3. Sweet hamper from HoneyKanes sweet shop

4. Beautiful selection of Green Owl Toys (pictured below)


After the event, the top 10 costumes will be posted to the Pumpkin Hunt Whitstable Facebook event with Demelza’s Facebook followers choosing the best within a limited time frame. The winner will be contacted after the event to collect their prize.

The overall winner will then be entered into a competition to potentially win a Merlin Annual Pass, donated by Active International.


Good Luck!
