Wyreema Halloween once again a hit
Over 530 kids travelled to dozens of homes around Wyreema to trick or treat last Saturday night, celebrating a holiday that, despite its foreign origin, has proved to be very popular.
Over the past few years, the Wyreema Community Hall has organised a Halloween event that sees both trick or treaters and houses getting the most out of the festivities.
The best decorated houses this year, as voted for by the trick or treaters, were:
1st Place: Nigel & Leanne Phillips
2nd Place: Kylie Griffin
3rd Place: Nicole Hoffmann
Wyreema Community Hall secretary Sara-Jane Howell said the Hall would like to thank everyone that came and supported the event, as they all had an amazing night and the costumes were absolutely outstanding.
“We would like to thank all the volunteers that helped at the event,” Mrs Howell said.
“We put a call out for helpers and we wouldn’t have made it without you!
“The Wyreema Community Hall is a small team of volunteers that work very hard for weeks to prepare for this event and we thank you for your extreme dedication every year.”
Mrs Howell also wished to thank the registered houses.
“Without the support of the Wyreema house registrations we can’t have the event,” she said.
“You are superstars with the amount of effort we see put into your houses for the kids!
“We hear them talking about how amazing of an experience they get from visiting you.”
The event was helped by Bek and Rick Knudsen from Bracknell Lodge through the donation of a bouncing castle they gifted the hall.
The money raised from registration costs goes towards
hosting the event, including providing food, drinks and entertainment.
