Fun games, themed treats and fancy costumes were the cornerstone of all Hallowe’en celebrations around the island. Brodick Primary School enjoyed two successive days of parties with a party for P5 to P7 one day, and another for P1 to P4s the following day.

Brodick Nursery children enjoyed games throughout the day and a special Hallowe’en themed Bookbug in the library  where they sang, danced and heard scary tales.

In Lochranza, at the village hall, visitors braved the rainy weather to congregate for a disco, traditional games and plenty of snacks which ensured that the young children, and adults, enjoyed a memorable Hallowe’en.
