There were loads of new faces at the market and the kids' craft market was packed with excited children and their mums, so the special Hallowe'en themed event did just what it set out to do. What the public didn't see was just how much effort went into planning, decorating the hall, setting up the activities etc.
Town Mayor Roger Bright came along to meet and be photographed with sign-painter Scott Hill, as well as taking part in the "Scare the Mayor" fun activity.
In the Reynolds Room Laura Lunn kept cool and composed while being swamped by enthusiastic children all wanting to make and paint spooky masks, bat models and more.
And some of the stallholders really did make an extraordinary effort with their costumes!
