Halloween is always fun at Hungerford Arcade – or so we thought! When suddenly and without warning, two witches flew down from the sky. They parked their brooms in the Arcade doorway, the door creaked and the glass rattled as they made their entrance. The older one, carrying a snowy owl on the end of her hand, cried out, “We have come this day of Halloween to awaken the spooks who dwell within the bowels of this Arcade”. The chandeliers shook on the ceilings and lights flickered. Fearful of the witches, we greeted them kindly hoping they would look upon us favourably, but it became obvious, mischief was on their mind.
