Treats trump tricks


A hoard of Halloween trick or treaters were out and about in Tamahere on All Hallows’ Eve (aka October 31).

Trick or treaters scaring up treats

Some of these trick or treaters, photographed visiting Newell Rd homes, travelled by suitably orange coloured tractor and trailer, said Andrea Rolfe, who captured the moment. They appeared to have joined up with another contingent hailing from other parts of Tamahere.

“We had a note put in to our letter box the previous day asking us to tack it to our gate if we were ok with children coming in,” Andrea said. “I thought that was a brilliant idea. The fact that they were supervised by adults was good, too, and they were really well behaved.”

All that organisation and good behaviour on the part of the ghouls and witches seems to have paid off.

“They certainly seemed to get a good haul of treats.”

Other trick or treaters visited homes in and around Devine Rd.

    I’m not sure how this would go down, but at the beach and on our farm years ago, we used to do a round, throwing out lollies on Xmas morning. Any thoughts?

    I was one of the parents, my daughters organised the note in the letterbox and my husband Bruce drove the tractor. The kids had the most amazing time. What a fantastic community with a wonderful spirit. It was just about the kids having fun and that they did!!!!! Thank you to all those who supported the children and a special thank you to the Strawberry Farm – the kids were raving about your strawberries. Fun Night.
