Staff at Morrisons in Portsmouth, Horndean and Gosport will be showing shoppers how to create masterpieces between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Thursday and Friday.

Helena Lightfoot, Portsmouth store manager, said: ‘Halloween is a big occasion for our customers with the perfect pumpkin taking centre stage in most UK households.

‘We know that some of our customers dread the annual carving, so we thought it would be useful to roll out our greengrocers – who can help turn their pumpkins into the perfect ghouls, ghosts, witches and Jack-o-Lanterns.

‘We hope our classes, stencils and online tutorials will help make carving easier.’
