Ghostly ghouls gasp as Clachan Guy burnt

Campbeltown Courier - - DISTRICTS -

SKELE­TONS, mum­mies and scary crea­tures gath­ered at Clachan’s com­bined Hal­lowe’en and bon­fire cel­e­bra­tion.

The evening’s fun, in Clachan vil­lage hall, last Fri­day, started with a fancy dress pa­rade be­fore two judges an­nounced the fol­low­ing win­ners: pret­ti­est: Matilda But­ter­fly, ugli­est: Wee, Wil­lie Winkie, scari­est: the mummy, most orig­i­nal: the bug, fun­ni­est: ghost­busters, best child: skeleton baby, best adult: mock po­lice­man with speed­gun, best over­all the bal­loons dress.

A se­ries of party games filled the hall while burg­ers were cooked and soup heated be­fore the fire was lit.

Games in­cluded a vari­a­tion on a three-legged race.

Com­peti­tors were joined by each bit­ing, not too firmly on a red liquorice shoe lace, they had to run the legth of the hall while con­nected.

An­other low cost game, which proved much fun, was wrap­ping a will­ing vic­tim in toi­let pa­per to cre­ate a mummy with a prize for the best cre­ation.

As rain con­tinue to hold off, the fun moved out­side where en­thu­si­as­tic adults lit the fire and let off fire­works.
