DONCASTER residents are being invited to try their hand at something creative to prepare for the town’s Handmade Parade.

The free creative session, on October 28, will be held at the Holmescarr Community Centre in Rossington, when families will be invited to make costumes for the parade from card, paint and glue!

Costumes made at the weekend will be worn at the Halloween Handmade Parade, which is taking place in Rossington from 2pm, on October 31, when Right Up Our Street bring the spooky spectacular to life.

Katherine Warman, Right Up Our Street, Arts Supporter for Rossington, said; “Our creative sessions are proving really popular and we’ve run a number of great events in school. Huge thanks to everyone who has already taken part and played their part in making arts for the parade.

The results of the creative community sessions will form the parade and will be accompanied by live music en route.

“We need as many hands as possible to help to make all elements of the parade. From painting things green to creating big puppets, there is a job to suit you.”

The half term workshops on October 28 run from 10am until 12.30pm and then from 2pm until 4.30pm.
