This year’s Ghouls & Fools event attracted hundreds of people to Lilian Bland Community Park in Glengormley on October 30.
The Halloween celebration is a joint venture between Newtownabbey Borough Council and Glengormley Community Group, with volunteers from the community organisation playing a major role in the preparations for the event and the clean-up afterwards.
Hailing this year’s event a great success, Community Group chairperson, Catherine Hardy said: “This was the third year of Ghouls & Fools and the biggest attendance so far. We are delighted to work in partnership with the council on this project.”
On Saturday, November 9 the group ran a workshop at Glengormley Pavilion allowing local children to show off their artistic abilities and create their own stepping stones, which will eventually form a path through the community garden in Lilian Bland Park.
Meanwhile, Glengormley Community Group will hold its annual general meeting upstairs in the Thunderdome Cafe on Saturday, December 7 at 10am.
All members of local community are welcome to come along and hear what the group is about and its plans for the area in the years ahead.
