This week Joys Green’s Lydbrook Hall, and Coleford’s Main Place were packed out with werewolves and vampires eating sausage and chips and carving pumpkins.
As the nights draw in and the mists hang heavy on the ancient Forest, it’s the time of year when the kids dress up as ghouls and goblins and get together to eat cake and have a great time.
Not-for-profit affordable housing organisation Two Rivers put on two free and freaky fun events for the season of grinning pumpkins, skeletons and pointy hats.
Local families enjoyed traditional games like apple bobbing, fancy dress competitions for the kids, face painting and pumpkin carving.
Two Rivers chief goblin Emma Towler said this years events had been a howling success.
“They were a real scream. Everyone had a ripping time. These are family affairs so the scary stuff isn’t really scary at all. It’s all tongue in cheek and powered by cakes and soft drinks.
“We organised the light hearted fun events for Two Rivers’ families, but lots of other locals turned up to join in the fun. Two Rivers is a community organisation dedicated to building a brighter future for local people of all ages and backgrounds,” she said.
