The Caistor Ghost Walk, the third event held as part of the Positive Activities project, proved to be the most successful to date .

In full costume, some 50 young people and many family members turned out for the fun-filled event.

Helen Pitman, organiser of the evening said, “The novelty of a ghost walk in such a wonderful place like Caistor seemed to enthuse a lot of young people.

“I really enjoyed researching and writing the script and learnt an awful lot about the history and heritage of the town.

“I must extend a big thank you to CATS for bringing the tale to life in such a fun and scary way.

“It has proved such a popular event, we were having to turn adults away who were not accompanied by children, that the Caistor Walkers are Welcome group is now looking to run a similar event for adults.

“So keep an eye out on and for information.”

The Caistor Young 
Peoples’ Positive Activities Programme called “All About You”, aims to engage with young people aged 8 to 18 
who, through the youth forum, will direct the steering group, led by the town council, to provide informal social, recreational and educational activities.

The organisers are looking for young people in the Caistor area to come forward join the youth forum and tell them what activities they would like to see happen.

The next events before Christmas include an Open Mic Night for 14 years upwards planned for Thursday December 18 and a traditional Christmas party and disco on Friday December 19 for 8 to 13 years.

More details will be available nearer the time on activities/ and the Caistor Diary.

Also find out more about the project and how to get involved at the All About You stall at the Christmas lights switch on, which takes place on Saturday November 29.
