On a bright sunny day, Chambers Farm Wood, near Wragby, is bursting with wildlife, visited by happy dog-walkers and filled with tranquil birdsong.

As dusk turns to night on Saturday, October 27, the atmosphere will become terrifyingly bone-tingling at the hands of the fundraising team at St Andrew’s Hospice.

The woodland is once again being transformed into Halloween spectacular, where witches hang out in the undergrowth and ghosts are ready to spook you at every turn.

The Scare Fest is being staged to raise money for Andy’s at St Andrew’s, the children’s unit at the site in Peaks Lane, Grimsby, and it promises to be even more thrilling than last year’s, which saw people from all over the county take part.

Participants will this year walk a 1.5-mile course through deep, dark woodland and by open countryside, with all manner of blood-curdling obstacles in their way and, thanks to feedback received through social media, the 2018 event will feature a family-themed walk for the first time.

Sign up to the Scare Fest at or call the fundraising team on 01472 350 908. Participants are asked to collect sponsorship, as the registration fees are used to cover costs.
