We have been in Halloween overload here at Coombe Mill. With 3 weeks of half term guests this year we have enjoyed our Halloween fun day, which is my post this week, and made good use of our famous Ghost Train too. As we clear away this weekend for Bonfire night I am am on sweet wrapper patrol right across the farm after a marathon run of Coombe Mill Trick or Treating!

Appologies my top commenters from last week:
I’m afraid I have failed to get through comments this week. Our duty Manager Amber has been on a much deserved holiday leaving Nick and I flat out with the business and the kids this week. I will catch up next week so your comments won’t go unrecognized. I really appreciate the support from those who join in with me.
Rockfish kindly sponsor Country Kids

I am delighted to have Rockfish as the sponsor for Country Kids. Rockfish are a local Cornish company specializing in stylish quality wellingtons for all the family. We have been offering their country wellies in our borrow room here on the farm for over a year and they are always popular for their style, comfort and durability.
Each week my favourite #CountryKids posts, which include my badge or a link back here, will be considered for a free pair of Rockfish Wellies at the end of the month; the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors whatever the weather throws your way.
