An annual tradition to host Halloween festivities with members of the Bedfordale community is kept alive and well this year thanks to the efforts of a local resident’s group.

The Bedfordale Residents’ Association hosted its annual community event at the Churchman Brook Community Centre on Sunday afternoon to shine a light on family-friendly Halloween activities for all to enjoy.

Association president Liz Reed said the event included a picnic in the park followed by a trick or treating trail at selected houses in the local area.

“We provide a few things for kids to occupy themselves with and everyone brings a plate to share,” she said.

Ms Reed said the event was a very casual affair with an aim to get families connecting with one another.

“Certain houses registered for the trick or treating after the party and lots of fun was had,” she said.

“Prizes for best dressed went to Elodie Osborne and Aerin Graziani- Murray, who each won a movie voucher.”

Other costumes included witches, skeletons, Wonder Woman and Spiderman.
