Cwmdare ‘mummies’ put the ‘treat’ into ‘trick or treat’

Halloween went off with a bang in the valleys after Cwmdare4Cwmdare (C4C) ‘mummies’ put on several spookily spectacular events for children across the village.

The first activity took place on Sunday evening when families, led by C4C Committee members, embarked on the popular annual Spooky Walk through the decorated route at Dare Valley Country Park, where they encountered witches, werewolves, and clowns.

Following the walk, over one hundred children dressed in their spookiest outfits returned to the club for a disco and fun-filled evening of dancing and games.

To complete the activities, on Halloween itself, fifty eager children spent the afternoon carving their pumpkins into fabulous designs, in preparation for their Trick or Treating later that evening. During the session the children were also treated to a healthy packed lunch to ensure they had the energy to complete their masterpieces. The events have been made possible after local energy company, Pennant Walters, donated money to C4C.

Cllr. Ann Crimmings, Secretary of C4C, said:

“These events have become a firm fixture in our calendar, and we know just how much the children love them!

“This Halloween we’ve seen witches, monsters and vampires through the doors of the Cwmdare Miners Welfare Club, and we’re delighted that so many families embraced the activities, A huge thanks to Pennant Walters for their continued support.”

The funding was linked to Pennant Walters’ 9 turbine 22 MW Mynydd Bwllfa windfarm near Aberdare in Rhondda Cynon Taf, which became operational in summer 2015. It builds on previous donations which have seen the company provide money to support various local community groups.

Pennant Walters Managing Director, Dale Hart, said:

“We really enjoy seeing the joy these events bring to the children of Cwmdare and seeing them dressed up in their array of spooky costumes certainly gave us a fright!

“We are always happy to support the work of C4C, which was established to work in partnership with organisations to make a difference to Cwmdare.

“Our wind energy project community funds exist to make a difference to the local communities in which we work, and it was clear to see that everyone attending the Halloween event had a great time.”
