Take a step back into Romford’s spooky past by taking part in a special event for Halloween.

Mr Havering himself, historian Brian Evans, is taking the community on a tour of all the town’s best haunted sites for Halloween.

Brian is hosting the event with the Recorder as part of its Fundraise on the First campaign with First Step, which supports children with special needs and disabilities.

Taking place from 7pm on October 29, the tour will begin outside the Golden Lion pub, in High Street, Romford.

It will give participants a glimpse into some of Romford’s haunted highlights, as well as its rich history.

As a member of Romford Rotary Club, Brian is a regular supporter of charities in Havering and is aware of the all-too important work which organisations such as First Step do.

On why he wanted to host this event with the Recorder, he said: “First Step is a local charity and it is wonderful to be able to do this.

“It is so important to be able to help these children.”

Brian, who lives in Brentwood, has been a historian for decades.

Among books he has had published include A Century of Romford, Remembering Romford and Hornchurch, Elm Park and Harold Wood Through Time.

All those taking part in the Halloween walk, which promises to be an evening of spooky fun and learning, are asked to donate a minimum of £5 to the campaign, either through justgiving.com/FundraiseontheFirst or by text.

To donate by text, text RCDR50 £5 to 70070.
