Spooky fun for all the family

Thrills and chills await Norwich children at Norwich City Council’s spook-tacular Halloween event on Wednesday 31 October.

The Jubilee Centre on Long John Hill in Lakenham will host the half-term day of ghoulish games, prize draws and face painting, with treats to delight children of all ages.

The fun starts at 11am, with pumpkin bowling, apple bobbing, a children’s entertainer, free refreshments – and much more – promising to draw in the crowds.

Children should come dressed to impress in their favourite Halloween costume to take part in our fancy dress parades – with prizes up for grabs – and parents can get in on the action by trying their luck in prize draws for Love2Shop vouchers (accepted at over 20,000 stores).

This free family funday, which will draw to a close at 3pm, has been organised by housing officers in conjunction with council contractors Norse, Gasway, Foster Property Maintenance and Anglian Building Products, and tenant and community groups.

On the day, council officers and Cotman Housing will be on hand to give housing and money advice, where they will jointly offer a prize for a money-saving activity. In addition, Cotman Housing will be there to discuss an outreach scheme for older people. There will also be local groups on hand to offer community and tenant involvement advice.

Look our for our Halloween funday poster in the south city area or contact the tenant involvement team on 0344 980 3333 or involvement@norwich.gov.uk for more details.
