I didn’t have far to travel for Hallowe’en this year. In fact, I went to a great event right on my doorstep!

Gloucester Cross was the venue for an evening of fun and entertainment, organised by the Gloucester City Centre Community Partnership. As well as traditional pumpkin carving and fancy dress competitions, Ropert McKenzie was on hand to tell some really spooky ghost stories to anyone passing by St. Michael’s Tower. John Adams, an X-Factor contestant, also performed songs from his new album which is in the iTunes charts.
