A pub is hosting a socially distanced spider hunt this Halloween weekend.

The Black Rabbit on Maldon High Street is hosting a Spot the Spider Hunt on Sunday and Saturday for kids to enjoy.

Children will have to spot all ten spiders to win a treat from the bucket of goodies.

Come dressed to scare the team for a chance to win a treat.

Owner Annie said: "Halloween, much like everything else in our current world, is not going to be the same this year and we don't want kids to go without a little treat and an excuse to dress up.

"It's not Halloween as we know it, but it will be fun, there will be pumpkins, fancy dress and most importantly, plenty of treats."

The event will be contact free and social distancing will be in place.

The Spide Hunt is available for kids from 12pm on Saturday (October 31) and Sunday (November 1).

The pub is also serving Sunday lunch with 10 per cent off if you book in advance.
