Among the spooky going-on’s the youngsters made their own trick-or-treat bags and were told a scary story.

Julie Lambert, from the children’s centre said: “It went very well. Absolutely everyone was in fancy-dress - the children all looked a real picture.

“It was very enjoyable and it was nice of the library to let us host it there - in the heart of the community.”

Children from the Jelly Tots playgroup clubbed together for their own party at Hemsworth Community Centre on Wednesday.
