Halloween pumpkins carved by Welwyn Hatfield Times readers

HARRY Potter, Lord of the Rings’ Gollum, A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger – these are just some of the fictional characters carved into pumpkins by Welwyn Hatfield Times readers for Halloween.

Readers have been busy carving plenty of pumpkins since our request in last week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times for you to send in your Jack O’Lantern pictures in preparation for Halloween.

* WGC woman Elaine Young and her children Jordan, 15, Craig, 12, 10-year-old Poppy, Hallie, six, and three-year-old Cody, carved various pumpkins in preparation for Halloween.
