Clachan’s Hallowe’en parade and fireworks night went off with a bang.

Scary, cute and comical characters of all ages met in the village hall to compete for a range of prizes last Friday night.

Entrants paraded round the hall while several spooky songs played and the judges deliberated over various categories.

The results were as follows: Prettiest: Eilidh Parkhouse. Ugliest: Alison MacCallum. Scariest: Elaine MacCallum. Most original: Libby Larkin. Funniest: Lori Silvan. Best group: The Norris family. Best child: Alasdair Paisley. Best adult: Maria Rae. Best overall: Lachlan and Lewis Gray.

After the results were announced, the children played some Hallowe’en themed games including mummy wrap, musical monsters and corners.

One of the judges, Anne Parkhouse, thanked everybody for their efforts and invited them to watch a fireworks display on the green outside.

A glowing bonfire had been lit and provided some warmth as spectators watched an impressive display.
