Call to help vamp up park for halloween

The hunt is on to find new blood to ensure the success of a Scarborough park’s annual Halloween event

The Friends of Falsgrave Park are hosting The Park in the Dark Experience on October 31 from 6.30pm.

This year will see a pumpkin lantern competition, a scary woodland walk, Halloween themed activities, and story-telling, with children and adults invited to dress up. The Halloween party attracts around 200 people each year.

Friends group chairman Dorothy Russell said: “Because of the continuing popularity of the event we are looking for new volunteers, without which we may have to consider cancelling this event. People’s help is urgently needed.”

The Friends would also like old net curtains, sheets and material to create those scary features.

To get involved contact Mrs Russell on (01723) 371629.
