Neston’s Spooky Halloween Market, The Results!

Neston’s Spooky Halloween Market took place on Friday 1st November. There were a few strange characters wandering about, some in fancy dress and others who had visited the free face painter.

The very scary looking Neston Mayor, Cllr Dominic Roberts, and Deputy Mayor Cllr Christine Warner, who had flown in on her broomstick especially for the occasion, were joined by the Junior Mayor and Deputy Junior Mayor for the judging of the trader’s pumpkin carving competition.


1st prize was awarded to ‘The Great British Bakehouse’.

2nd Prize to ‘Neston Fish & Seafoods’


3rd Prize went to the ‘Liverpool Cheese Company’.  The Council were delighted that the pumpkin was put to good use.

The entertainment was provided by the 64’N Ukes who were raising money for Help for Hero’s.

There were activities for children including free face painting, Halloween biscuit decorating (provided by the Wooden Spoonful) and a craft activity (provided by the Girl Guides).

The day was also a ‘Foodie Friday’ week and the market basement food hall was packed full of tasty treats to compliment the street food traders and regular food and other traders on the Market Square.

A lot of fun was had by all, on a very autumnal Friday Market. Neston Town Council would like to thank all those who joined in the fun.
