Pg 12/13 heading: Hallowe’en parties are in full swing

Hallowe’en parties have been in full swing on Arran this week and we have been out and about to capture all the fun as our pictures show.

At schools and village halls there have been ghosts and ghoules, witches, mermaids and a few topical characters as well including none other than the President of US of A Donald J Trump who turned up at Monday night’s Hallowe’en party in Whiting Bay.

In Lamlash, primary pupils turned out in their droves for the popular Hallowe’en disco which always promises an energetic night of lively dancing, fun games, inventive costumes and the popular fancy dress competition for all ages.

Here are just some of the event we attended before we went to press. Don’t miss next week’s Banner for a bumper round-up of parties from all around the island.
