Halloween trail raises funds for primary school memorial garden

On Halloween night, Sunday 31 October, more than 100 children from Reepham and the surrounding area took part in a Trick or Treat Trail – the sixth year the event has been held in the town.

The trail featured 16 stops including Haunted Houses, where the children played spooky games before collecting their treats, which saw witches, ghosts, vampires and pumpkins all over town.
Event organiser Funforce thanked everyone for taking part and in particular the supporters for donating funds to assist the evening, including Reepham Life, Co-op, Dial House, King’s Arms, Happy House Chinese Restaurant, Dollie’s Bakery Hoveton, Spar Reepham, Parsons & Co Estate Agents, Reepham Home Hardware, Scrapbox and Motts Pharmacy, who helped make this year the best-supported event to date.
A total of £350 was raised and donated to Reepham Primary School for a memorial garden in memory of Chloë Prigmore, a much-loved teaching assistant, who died earlier this year following a short diagnosis of a rare form of lung cancer.
“Thanks also to our fantastic hosts at the Haunted Houses,” said Graham Andrew of Funforce. “Your efforts were really appreciated, and the children loved playing the games. The children received bundles of treats for their endeavours and there has been some amazing feedback.”
Next year’s event will take place on Sunday 30 October 2022. This will be a new trail and if anyone would like to volunteer to be a Haunted House, please contact Graham Andrew on 07802 439654 or email.
