The Great Pumpkin Trail has expanded to take in several villages.

Orginially the idea of Teri Clubb from Balmedie, she came up with the idea of a pumpkin trail in the village which would act as a fundraiser for the NHS Grampian’s Endowment Fund.

The idea was quickly taken up by residents in nearby Ellon and has now been extended to both Collieston, Newburgh and Potterton.

The trail event will take place between October 26 and October 31 with people being asked to come up with their own creations using the orange squash and put them on display outside their homes and businesses that week.

It costs £3 to enter creations which can be carved, painted or just dressed up and there's a prize for the best pumpkin.

Maps of each of the locations are updated weekly at https://www.facebook.com/itsthegreatpumpkintrail as more and more participants join in.
