A ROSYTH community served up a Halloween treat for youngsters at the weekend when they put on a spooky disco.

The Sherbrooke Area Residents Association (SARA) organised the event aimed at offering a ghoulishly-good time for children living in the area.

Lesley Davidson, who set up the organisation with a handful of fellow residents earlier this year, was delighted with how the party went.

"We had decided we would set up a wee association to try and brighten up the estate, planting bulbs and things like that," she explained. "We have been applying to different places for funding and donations and we just decided that there's not a lot down this way for the kids to do.

"As a group, we used to do parties years ago when our own kids were young so we felt we wanted to give something back to the community so we thought we would have a Halloween party.

"We had it in the estate. We were given the use of two marquees, one from the Scouts and one from the Rosyth community gala, and a guy came along to do a disco."

With donations of sweets and other goodies from local businesses including Asda, Tesco, McColls and Stephen's the Bakers, the children were able to enjoy an array of scary games and treats.

Lesley added: "We were able to decorate the whole estate with signs and posters pointing the way to the party and outside the community garden we made a cemetery and the kids did bobbing for apples and things.

"It was amazing. The amount of kids that turned up was brilliant. We reckon about 60 children came."
