Haunted Hal­lowe’en fun and games on Ar­ran

The Arran Banner - - Leisure -

In our sec­ond in­stal­ment of Hal­lowe’en cel­e­bra­tions which took place across Ar­ran we present a snap­shot of the rest of the par­ties which the Ar­ran Ban­ner at­tended.

At Brod­ick Pri­mary School, chil­dren dressed for the oc­ca­sion, en­joyed tra­di­tional games and took part in fun com­pe­ti­tions, many of them in­volv­ing en­thu­si­as­tic and ac­tive danc­ing, to earn them­selves sweet prizes.

The tra­di­tional Mon­trose House Hal­lowe’en evening at­tracted a large gather­ing of young guis­ers who per­formed for the care home res­i­dents in or­der to re­ceive tasty treats and a goodie-bag to take home with them. Res­i­dents, this year, were treated to jokes, songs, danc­ing and even a few magic tricks.

Over in Shisk­ine Vil­lage Hall where an evening of tra­di­tional games is the high­light of many a young guiser’s Hal­lowe’en plans, chil­dren en­thu­si­as­ti­cally took part in fun games along with the lib­eral hand­ing out of toys and sweet prizes. Be­sides the usual dook­ing for apples and eat­ing jam pan­cakes, chil­dren en­joyed danc­ing and run­ning games and some con­vinced their par­ents to join in with the fun.

Al­to­gether, Hal­lowe’en on Ar­ran has been a week­long cel­e­bra­tion with fun ac­tiv­i­ties taking place at var­i­ous vil­lage halls and schools. It has also once again been a wel­come in­tro­duc­tion to the start of the cold, dark win­ter nights that lie ahead.
