Will there be no more hauntings at The Heritage Village?
HALLOWEEN at the Heritage Village sold out again this year, but the talk of the event focused less on the costumes and more on whether Saturday night's event would be the last one.
Many locals voiced concerns on the weekend over whether Halloween would continue to be celebrated at the Heritage Village if the council stopped managing the asset.
But Councillor Rose Swadling said the success of Saturday night spoke volumes about the future of the event.
"The enormous amount of community support was fantastic," she said.
"I'm hoping it's not something we put on the shelf.
"It's something very positive, and I'm hoping we can continue it into the future."
She praised the "fantastic" work of volunteers and staff who put together the event.
Earlier this year the council put forward a proposal to turn over the management of the Heritage Village to a community group.
