Finding stuff for the kids to do over Halloween can be pretty scary, when all they want to do is dress up like monsters and play practical jokes. It's worth remembering that the more treats you give them, the fewer tricks you can expect in return! So it's the perfect time to treat them to a game of bowling at Tenpin. The centre is offering a deal of one game of bowling and a burger meal for just £6.99 per junior and £9.99 for adults. For more details visit www.tenpin.co.uk/exeter/
