Is it teething time for your little one?


With Halloween fast approaching, there are lots of fun activities taking place across the country throughout the month of October. 


From haunted houses to spooky train rides, there is a huge range of things to do this spooky season.

Saturday, 29th, Sunday, 30th and Monday, 31st October 2016 


A treasure map and rhyming clues will lead everyone around Belvedere Estate, where ghoulish characters will meet, greet and give treats to all “contestants” in what’s sure to be a frightfully fun experience for all the family. The treasure hunt contestants will get the treasure maps and clues (must be over 3 years of age and up to 16 years of age). Younger children will certainly need help from their parents/siblings and therefore family teams are encouraged.
