  • Was your costume a trick or a treat? - If you visited Masquerade last Saturday, you will know it was hectic for Halloween.  After last year when scary clowns were a big no no, this year clowns seemed to be popular. I heard several tales of woe, regarding packet  costumes that had been ordered  from various online suppliers and not arrived, were poor quality or just didn't fit. Next year I look forward to seeing you all at Masquerade  to enjoy the full experience of selecting the perfect costume to suit you.
