Shops join in spooky fun with Halloween prizes

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

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’.
