It’s set to be a spooky day in Ilkeston today...

A Hallowe’en-inspired day starts with a fancy dress competition in the Market Place, judged by Mayor Cllr Val Clare at 12.30pm.

There is a pool party at Victoria Park Leisure Centre from 3.30pm to 5pm when the pool will be spookily decorated and fun floats will be out.

Limited tickets are £3 each and there will be a free toffee apple for every child and a chance to win an iPod.

Free activities include guided ghost walks around Market Place, ghost tours of the Town Hall and spooky story-telling sessions.

And look out for creepy characters roaming the town.
