Royston First BID has announced the winner of their children's Monster Halloween Trail.

From Saturday, October 21 to Wednesday, November 1, children aged 11 and under followed the trail map through the town to find the 13 hidden monsters lurking in shop windows.

As they went, the young adventurers answered questions on an entry form for a chance to win a Halloween hamper from Ladds.

The winner, chosen at random, was seven-year-old Noah Witherington.

Noah said: "I enjoyed doing the trail, and I'm looking forward to doing the next one!"

Paul Brown, manager at Royston First BID, added: "We are thrilled to have hosted the annual family-friendly Halloween Trail in Royston Town Centre.

"As usual, it provided a wonderful opportunity for families to come together, celebrate the spirit of Halloween, visit local businesses, and a chance to win an exciting prize.


"The Monster Halloween Trail would not have been possible without the enthusiastic participation of local shops.

"Royston First BID extends its heartfelt thanks to all the shops that took part in creating this magical experience for the community.

"We now look forward to our next trail, the Nutcracker Christmas Trail, which starts on Friday, December 1."
