Zombies invade the Ash Green Lantern Parade 2018

More people than ever joined the Ash Green School lantern parade this year following lantern making sessions from NHP Sure Start Children’s Centres and Family Support teams and extra Project Twelve:31 sessions at The Addy and Mixenden Activity Centre provided by Mixenden Initiative.

Children and families were treated to a spooky show outside the library from the Three Witches of Mixenden, the Project Twelve:31 Zombie Girl’s Group and Donald Trump’s hairy rotten toe!

Ensuring a safe and successful parade were Ash Green school staff and teachers, Calderdale Council’s Community Wardens, local Police Officers from West Yorkshire Police and Project_Twelve:31 volunteers.

Special thanks to Jill Barker and Mixenden Activity Centre for the loan of the bikes, the boys activity sessions and the Witches fabulous hair pieces, and to Mixenden Libary for allowing us to use the Library space for getting ready and decorating.
