The spooky season may feel a little different this year but children can still get creative to decorate their doorsteps for Halloween.

We want to see pictures of proud pumpkin owners posing alongside their haunted designs for a gallery in our newspaper.

You can share your photos with us by email or send them to us on Facebook and a handful of our favourites will be selected.

Make sure to tell us your name, where you are from and a little bit about your pumpkin creation and the inspiration behind it.
