MY family visited us from Newcastle at the weekend and I spotted an advert for a Hallowe'en event to be held at The Horsefair on Saturday afternoon and we all decided to go along and enjoy the fun.

Much hilarity ensued as my husband and I, my daughter and son-in-law and our three grandchildren got out the sewing box, raided our wardrobes and got creative with the face paints.

We managed to create fancy dress outfits for all of us, even our four month old son and his two teddy bears.

When we arrived at the Horsefair the atmosphere was electric. My daughter and her husband were so impressed by the community spirit and the friendliness of the town folk.

The children had a great time and our grandson Alex even had his photo taken with the Mayor, as he won a prize for his werewolf costume.

We are so lucky to live in this area where so many community events are organised. I know our family didn't want to return home, or for their weekend of fun to end.
