There were plenty of things going bump in the night as the hauntings of Halloween came to OurPlace.
Zombies, witches, ghosts and even a creepy clown descended on the youth facility in Huyton, where they took part in traditional Halloween games such as duck apple and pumpkin carving.
It was treats all round as those who went along enjoyed a Halloween-themed disco and a ‘CSI murder mystery’ challenge, whilst professional make-up artists and caricaturists were on-hand to transform the young people into spooky characters.
Throughout half-term, young people had been helping put together a gruesome graveyard cake, which went down a treat on the night.
Also on the menu was a special pumpkin lasagne and chocolate apples - made by the young people themselves with the help of a professional chef.
Molly Ryder, Youth Worker at OurPlace, commented,
Cllr Eddie Connor, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Community and Culture, said, “OurPlace is really popular with young people in the borough and it’s fantastic to see plenty of things going on.
“What’s special about OurPlace is that all of the ideas for activities come from the young people themselves, and they help make them a reality. I’m sure they will be very proud of the success of the Halloween night. ”
