New spine-chilling event is being planned for the October half term holiday

Lyme Regis is gearing up for some spine-chilling fun this autumn.

The Lyme Slime Halloween Festival will take place during half term, with a programme of spooky activities between Saturday October 21 and Sunday 29.

Venues across the town are already joining in, with events at the Town Mill, Marine Theatre, Whoopsadaisy and a spine-tingling town trail.

It all takes place alongside the return of the Lyme Slime 1K and 2K fun runs.

Organiser Sally Raynes, from social enterprise Wacky Nation said: “We are keen for community groups, sports clubs and businesses to get involved. We are also looking for crafty individuals to help decorate the Marine Parade Shelter in a Halloween theme or knit a giant spider and web.”

Anyone wishing to run an activity or volunteer to help with the festival or fun run should ring 01297 639182 or contact Sally via wackynation@hotmail.com
