Light Night 2012 – 31st October 2012

On what had been our first ‘Light Night’ for a few years, we had a good number joining with us for an evening of fun and activities.

We organised the ‘Light Night’ as a safe alternative for children and their parents in which they could enjoy playing games and other activities rather than indulging in ‘trick or treat’ around the houses.

The main hall was decorated with strings of fairy lights hung across the room which provided atmospheric lighting for the evening.

The seventeen children and associated parents and helpers began the evening by playing games which were loosely organised by Phil and kicked off with Newspaper Hockey which was followed up by Chinese Laundry and Musical Chairs.

Alan then told the story of Gideon’s defeat of the Mideonites, taken from Judges 7, highlighting light and darkness.

Afterwards, the children went through into the back room where Lesley organised the making and colouring of paper torches before the evening finished with light refreshments organised by Hayley and Kerry.
