Principal Trisha Parker said the Halloween Fair had become a hit over the years ‘because parents love the opportunity to have some Halloween fun in a safe, family-friendly environment’.

Competitions included Best Dressed, Halloween Cakes, Best Scarecrow and the new Fairy Light Guessing Competition.
