Playgroup kids go batty for Halloween


CHILDREN at a playgroup have been going batty in the run-up to Halloween.

Youngsters at Colden Pre-School Playgroup cut out bats, witch hats and spiders to hang from the spooky cobweb clouds strewn across the ceiling.

They have been kept busy cutting up vegetables to make fresh pumpkin soup and have enjoyed dressing up as ghosts and ghoulies.

Lisa Kennaugh, early years professional, said: “The children really love the sense of excitement that this time of year brings, with the nights drawing in and the weather getting chillier.

“They are having a lot of fun with all the Halloween activities.”

The playgroup, in a small rural setting, caters for children from the Hebden Bridge and Todmorden areas.

It has been praised by Ofsted for its excellent and vibrant range of resources.

The playgroup has places available for children aged from two-and-a-half to four, with three to four year-old funding.
