Witches, bats, mummies, zombies and wizards filled the streets of Camelford as they piled into the local library for a special Hallowe’en competition.   

‘Count Dracula’ and ‘Cruella DeVille’ welcomed local children to the annual ‘Pumpkins on Parade’ event held at Camelford Library on Monday, October 30. 

Bronwen Hockerday, senior librarian, said: “A spooky time was had by all with Halloween themed activities, stories, disco and crafts, plus sweet treats and cookies for all the hungry ghosts and ghouls!”

All manner of ‘monsters’ brought their carved pumpkins along for judging and prizes were awarded by Cllr Maggie Ginger and deputy clerk Jordan Burnard for the best pumpkins and the best fancy dress.

The winners of the pumpkin carving competitions were: 1, Ty Sillifant; 2, Oscar Bragg; 3, Zachary Stephens.

First in the fancy dress competition was Teddy Thomas, followed by Erin Mahmut in second and Libby Ford in third.
