RESIDENTS on a Lundwood street are set to host a spooky garden party tomorrow in hopes of keeping spirits high despite the current coronavirus restrictions.
Parents and children on Priory Place will celebrate Halloween in their own garden after one of the street’s residents, 28-year-old Rebecca Dec, decided to bring the street together in light of the new tier three restrictions.
She told the Chronicle: “For the last couple of weeks we’ve been feeling down because the kids love Halloween and they’ve not been able to have their usual disco at school.
“I know that a lot of the mums are upset that it hadn’t happened, and with Covid-19 we were unsure about trick or treating - with social distancing and now being in tier three we decided to have a garden disco.”
Rebecca has three children, aged four, eight and five, all of who will be taking part in the disco and she hopes that more children will be getting involved.
“There’s prizes for the best-dressed and we’ve got some sweet bags to hand out as well,” she added.
“A lot of people are already saying they’re going to get involved after I posted a note through everyone’s doors.
“It’s a good way to keep spirits high on the street and it shows the community spirit we have here.”
