Event was spectacular

Congratulations to everyone involved in organising a wonderful family evening at Bothal School in Ashington to celebrate Hallowe’en and Guy Fawkes.

It really was a tremendous evening with loads for youngsters to do, stalls and a funfair to enjoy, all rounded off by a truly spectacular professional fireworks display.

The event was organised by the Friends of Bothal and Wansbeck Schools with the support and full backing of staff from the two schools.

I believe any money left over after all the expenses have been paid will go to the schools to be used for the benefit of their students.

That in itself is praiseworthy, but the real achievement on the night was putting on an event that whole families could enjoy together.

The volunteer organisers clearly put a huge effort into pulling together a spectacularly successful evening and it must have taken up a great deal of their time to do that.

Well done to them all.
