Skeletons, mummies and scary creatures gathered at Clachan’s combined Halloween and bonfire celebration.

The evening’s fun, in Clachan village hall, last Friday, started with a fancy dress parade before two judges who 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 pyromaniac adults lit the fire and let off fireworks.
