It was a night to remember for one group of thrill-seeking youngsters this Halloween as they used the night to transform their building into a haunted house.

The Hornchurch & Upminster Sea Cadet unit enjoyed a spooky and ghostly Halloween celebration at their headquarters in Wood Lane, Elm Park.

On Tuesday night, the unit’s cadets and staff all dressed up and experienced ghostly goings on in the graveyard, with guest appearances by some big spiders, bats, cobwebs and skeletons, all watched over by a terrifying life-size illuminated witch who watched everyone pass by with her evil eyes.

The officer in charge of the unit, Lt Sarah Butcher, said: “It’s good to do fun things with the cadets. It makes a change from our normal parade nights and the atmosphere of fun is good for the morale of the unit.”
