THERE will be plenty of spooky goings-on at the many Halloween events going on across Bromsgrove and Rubery today (Friday).

Last Thursday (October 23), before they broke up for half-term, youngsters from Catshill First School held a spooky disco and raised more than £400 for their new reading scheme.

Those in nursery and reception had their discos in the afternoon and the Key Stage 1 and 2 children had theirs after school.

The hall was decorated with pumpkins carved by the children and there was an array of costumes worn by the children.

Among the popular characters were zombies, vampires, witches and even a Batman or two.

Adam Rivett, the school’s new assistant headteacher, said there was an amazing turn-out which made the disco a great success.

“We want to thank the parents and carers for all their efforts with costumes and supporting the school in working towards their new reading scheme.

“It was a delight to see everyone having loads of fun.

“A big thank you to Tracy as well who ran the disco,” he added.
