Werewolves, vampires and ghouls gathered for a spooky Halloween party at Bestwood Social Club raising over £400 for future events at the venue.

Organiser Karen Peacock said: “It was absolutely fantastic - everyone made a huge effort to dress up. We had everyone from Dracula to Frankenstein to Freddy Krueger.”

Around 200 people attended the event which saw the hall’s stage decorated like a cave with cobwebs, spiders and bats.

The dance floor was filled with party games like musical statues to the strains of Thriller by Michael Jackson.

A competition for best costume was run with £10 cash prizes and the stage was decorated like a cave with cobwebs, spiders and bats.

The money raised will pay for a Winter Wonderland event which has been pencilled in for 7th December.

“The volunteers were fantastic: Gary and Sue James, Simon and Kev Perkins, and Vaughn Jackson,” added Sue.

“Connor Perkins and Jacob Bamford, both 17 and studying for their A-levels at Holgate Academy, dressed up and jumped out at people!”

On Friday 7th November a bonfire event and fireworks display, organised by the parish council and St Mark’s church, will be held at the club. The free event starts at 6pm. Volunteers to build the bonfire are need from 9.30am. Call 07591947432 for more.

And on Saturday 8th November, tribute band Sons and Lovers will play.
