Spooktacular Triumph for Alex

Young families from the village flocked to Alex Johnson’s Hallowe’en Disco Party with even the smallest babies in a fabulous array of spectacular costumes.

Children were treated to an entrance corridor hung with shredded fabrics & lit by ghostly images. The Village Hall Foyer was transformed into a Witches’ Lair with lighted cauldron & an invitation to “Enter if you Dare”. They loved it!

Once inside the Hall the theme, entirely designed by Alex continued & was enhanced by Colin Gornall’s wonderful array of lighting effects.

As promised, Hallowe’en Hot Dogs, Spooky Squash & Creepy Cakes went down a treat and we thank Harry and Caroline Landless, Louise, Hannah & Grace Chadwick and Lyn Johnson for their generous input as well as all those who baked & donated prizes for the raffle.

Judging of the Fancy Dress was literally a nightmare – even with 9 fabulous prizes to award. They ALL deserved prizes! Thank you Andy Thiele and Festival Queen Roisin for judging. Of course Alex had provided a host of spot prizes and there is no doubt everyone left the party full of praise for his efforts.

As many will know, Alex is our youngest Festival Committee Member at just 18 yrs – the future is in exciting hands and we picked up messages that there are more young people keen to come on board.

May we invite them to come along to the Festival AGM in The Grapes Inn, 7.30pm on Tuesday 15th November.
