HAUNTED households across Hyndburn donned witches hats and carved pumpkins for Halloween.

Around 100 children and parents took part in a Halloween party at Clayton-le-Moors and Altham Children’s Centre.

Mascot Quackers the Duck made an appearance as ‘Count Quackula’ to hand out certificates and prizes for the best dressed and for the pumpkin competition.

The party included a disco, craft activities, face painting and games. Accrington Lions held their annual family Halloween party at a new venue the Poplar Social Club on Wellington Street, Accrington where over 180 people attended.
