ACORN Community and friends enjoyed a fantastic Halloween party at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre on Saturday evening. Hosted by the inimitable Professor Nincompoop, the party was our best yet with games for young and old alike, free buffet, free raffle, disco and bar. Children started off the evening by scrambling about chasing balloons, which is always a popular attraction, then music from the disco aimed at children’s favourites. Of course, not to be left out, it wasn’t long before the adults were showing off their best moves to the cha cha slide etc with hilarious consequences. Next came the parade of zombies, skeletons, and vampires and the best costumes were judged for cash prizes. Each ticket sold had a number which was a raffle number and were pulled from a bag to select prizes. There were also impromptu gifts for dancing, games etc. We have some wonderful pictures and memories of the event so we would like to thank our committee for organising a great evening, Professor Nincompoop for his entertainment and Amanda and the staff of the leisure centre for their help and support on the evening. Can’t wait to do it all again next year. Ken Robson
