PTB Halloween Trail 2018 was a scream

Every year we think the Halloween Trail can’t possibly get any bigger and each year it surpasses our expectations.  This year we estimate that six hundred little ghouls, ghosts and monsters of Penge gathered, accompanied by their parents and carers, and wandered the length of the High Street gathering treats from the lovely businesses who took part….
