On Sunday October 7 The Jungle NI are hosting their kids Zombie Run with a 2km and 6km zombie-chasing course. This is an obstacle run with a fiendish Halloween twist – think Rampage meets The Walking Dead! Each runner starts with three lives (represented by flags worn about the waist) but, in addition to the running, the overcoming of obstacles and the manoeuvering through mud, runners also face zombies who will give chase in attempt to steal one of their three lives.


Charity dinner in aid of Children's Heartbeat Trust NI, Tullyglass Hotel, Ballymena, Saturday October 6. Start the evening with a drinks reception, followed by a four-course meal, raffle/auction and then dance the night away. £35 per person with discount for bookings of 10 or more. For tickets or further information contact Tracy 0784 3812 867. All money raised in aid of Children's Heartbeat Trust NI Charity No: NIC102410.
