Adult Costume - Russ with his truly scary face. Georgia was the runner up
Child Costume - Elliot the Mad Scientist with Teddy as runner up
House - Sean with his home made gravestones
Pumpkins - Penny (the "babies" were I think grown by her)
A special mention has to go to the Spooky LandRover which even came along to Newton's Walk to join in. Unfortunately I didn't catch their names (and apologies to any of the above whose names I may have misspelt)
THANK YOU to everyone who decorated their houses, carved pumpkins and gave out treats. Also for respecting the privacy of residents who did not display the orange fliers. Thanks to Lyndsey & Tina's efforts, the event was wonderful fun and even raised about £40 for Six Streets.
As well as comments on the night, we received this feedback from the Contact Us link:
We just wanted to say a BIG Thank you to 6 streets and all the houses that participated in the Halloween fun, all our kids had fantastic time and we were so impressed with the effort everyone had gone too. Thanks again.

Many thanks to Becc for doing the website genuis stuff! This site has made it so much easier to keep more people up to date and involved. Also heartfelt thanks to Jane Hives for our logo and her poster designs.
All events - both the fundraising and the fun ones - are run by volunteers, it is truly amazing that so much can be done by so few! Well done to everyone - and thank you.
