A Spooktacular Party

The Community Support Team’s spooky annual Halloween Party was held in the Trinity Community Centre on 31st October, and it went down a treat.

As everyone arrived, they entered through the foyer of the TCC which had been turned into a graveyard. Amidst the graves and gravestones, motion-sensor crows squawked at party-goers, and a massive spider hung down from the ceiling giving people a fright. All this made for a spooky night, along with the low lighting and glow sticks setting the mood.

Dan Blaze was set up and ready to go in the soft play area and the children enjoyed various games including limbo and, of course, the neon disco. The children had so much fun and their fancy-dress outfits were probably the best we have seen – good job mums and dads!

We also added a little extra to the party this year with ‘Been Happy’ providing unlimited popcorn, candy floss and slushies throughout the evening.

After some games and dancing it was food time, with hot dogs, party food, cakes, and all things naughty (more candy floss and popcorn) – then it was back to the fun and games, with the neon disco coming into its own.

All too soon the two and a half hours had gone and it was time to go home. To kick-start the children’s ‘trick or treat’ adventure, they left with a party bag containing some sweets and little toys.

As always with these events, they cannot be a success without the efforts of numerous people working hard behind the scenes. We would like to thank Emma Day, Kary Lamp and Katie Wilton for all their help leading up to, and during, the party. A further thank you must go to Warrant Officer Henderson for arranging a working party of ‘tall lads’ to help black-out the windows and decorate the venue. Without these people and their constant support, these events would genuinely never happen.
