Scare in the community... Hallowe’en celebrations in York
9:32am Friday 1st November 2013 in News
A FRONT garden, a garage and two clothes stores were the scene of spooky goings-on in York as the city celebrated Hallowe’en.
Shipton-by-Beningbrough resident Kim Meek turned her garden into a trick-or-treat extravaganza – an annual tradition in the village – for children to visit for free, complete with stocks, headstones and a guillotine.
“Hallowe’en is my Christmas,” Kim said.
They will also hold a raffle on Bonfire Night and the top prize will be a mountain bike.
Meanwhile, the BHS stores in the city centre and at Monks Cross Shopping Park staged a range of Hallowe’en activities this week, including face-painting, raffles, lucky dips, cake sales and fancy dress contests.
The chain is fundraising for the NSPCC, a charity it has supported since 2006 and which it is helping to provide more ChildLine counsellors. This week’s events are boosting its efforts.
