Smashingly good retro pumpkin scenes as we take a seasonal look at Hartlepool and East Durham

They are an important part of Halloween and just as much fun to carve.

Pumpkins will be out in force on October 31 as they light up the dark during trick or treat outings.

But pumpkins are just as impressive at other times of year, and often feature in horticultural shows.

We have archive reminders of pumpkin carvings, displays and some prize-winning pumpkins in this retro round-up from Ward Jackson Park, Middle Street in Blackhall, Blackhall Navy Club and Wingate Sure Start Centre.

Have a look and see if you can spot someone you know.
