He used recycled wood from the Oxford Recycle Centre in Abingdon and Raw, a reclaimed wood shop based in Blackbird Leys.

He also used spray paints, acrylic paints and builders foam for the face of the clown. Mr Singleton has already received lots of interest from passers-by who have made the occasional Halloween joke.

Oxford Mail:

The Blue Boar pub is looking forward to lots of ‘ghouls and spooky folk’ popping by on Halloween.
