Nailsea Community Group and Nailsea Active have announce its pumpkin trail called pumpkins go to the movies.

Local resident Helen Morgan approached the groups with the idea and has been instrumental in helping them organise and manage the event, which has challenged people and shops to recreate their favourite film, as a pumpkin or window decoration.
