A great time was had by all at this is year’s Light Party in Royston – which celebrated its 10th year.
The event, at the Coombes Community Centre in Burns Road, provides an alternative to Halloween for children in the district.
Paul Brown of Churches Together – which organised the party – said: “We had 130 children come to the event many of them with their parents too, and everyone had a great time.
“The mayor, councillor Vera Swallow, came along and she was enjoying herself.
“The children were doing craft activities and games, all to do with light, and coming up with many creative ideas.
