Shops join in spooky fun with Halloween prizes
FAMILIES and children are being invited to take part in Accrington’s first-ever ‘Trick or Treat Week’ this Halloween.
Little horrors will be able follow a ghastly walk around the town centre and fill their Halloween baskets with sweets and treats.
More than 20 businesses are taking part in the free initiative and participants will receive stamps to be entered into a frightfully fun prize draw.
Children can pick up an entry card at the Town Hall between Saturday, October 28, and 4pm on Friday, November 3.
The aim is to collect 10 stamps from a list of shops on the card and return it to the Town Hall for a chance to win.
The prizes include a Kindle Fire, a family ticket to interactive show ‘Return to Narnia’, and a deluxe Halloween sweetie hamper.
Jonathan Parkinson, director of event sponsors Duckworths Estate Agents, said: “It is great that we can have these initiatives which get young people out and about during half term in a fun, creative way.”
Fellow sponsors Accrington and Rossendale College have also got into the Halloween spirit by showcasing their students’ special effects make up skills on council leader Miles Parkinson and other ‘victims’.
