South Holland went all spooky and scary over the weekend as ghosties and ghoulies enjoyed a selection of Halloween events.

A family party was organised by the EELS – Events and Enterainment in Long Sutton – committee and raised more than £200.

The money will go towards Christmas festivities organised by the group.

Chairman Jack Tyrrell said: “It would have been nice if a few more people had supported it but it was a good night and those who did come were all in costumes.”

Flinders Founders in Donington lit up their weekend with a pumpkin-festooned party at the community centre, which was enjoyed by all those who attended.

And Whaplode Youth Club members and their families all got together for another well-attended spooky costume event at the church hall on Saturday.

Although there was not a witch costume in sight, scores of youngsters enjoyed Halloween activity sessions organised by The Holiday Club, at The Umbrella, Westlode Street, Spalding.

The club ran for three days during the school holiday and on Thursday more than 40 youngsters took part in an arts and acraft session which saw four to 11-year-olds creating spooky pictures and making ghosts, ghouls and shuddery spiders out of a variety of materials.

Hannah Amess, who runs The Umbrella and helped out at The Holiday Club, said: “It all went really well and as usual the club was really well supported and everyone had lots of good spooky and scary fun.”
