Halloween Party
On Sunday,there was a great atmosphere in  Charlie’s Bistro as over 100 children joined us for our Halloween party.

It started out with Treasa and her wonderful puppet show. The children dressed in their fancy dress sat quietly and watched in awe. This was followed by her magic show and sing along with the kids.

They all queued in an orderly fashion as they waited to see what balloon twister Treasa would make them. We had poodles and swords etc. and of course the boys couldn’t resist having sword fights.

In the meantime Paula had started face painting and again there was a huge queue wondering what they would ask Paula to paint on their faces.

Thanks to Danny our DJ who had just rushed back from a ladies U13 blitz to provide great music for the kids disco.

Everyone had a ball. The children had treats galore, party bags, balloons etc. Thanks to everyone for their help and support.

Thanks to the parents, grandparents and friends for bringing children. Today,we were honoured to host young members of our club and members  of our community. Thank you all so much!
