2021 Fish n Chip Shop Run 31st October
Report by Dave Simpson
T’was a wet and stormy morn on Halloween when the local branch of
ghoulies and witches gathered at Scotch Corner for their annual rising
from their resting places to attack a fish restaurant many miles away.
The chief organiser now known as missing gear Mike gave out instructions
where to terrorise the local population before the group sallied forth
in their chariots.
In order to cause as much terror along the way they were told to pass
through many villages and to take a devious and twisty passage to their
destination. Unfortunately, one chariot in a gorgeous shade of black
failed to start so with heavy heart he was left to scare travelling
humans at the service station all alone. We hope he made it back to the
after world before midnight.
Along the route the weather did not improve it remained a dark wet and
stormy passage which was to our advantage as sunshine makes us happy and
joyous and we wouldn’t want that would we? After many hours of
travelling passing through deep floods which some chariots found a
trifle awkward the spooky band arrived at the eating place which as you
know only happens once per calendar year, so it was with great misery
that the group attacked the hostelry.
Fortunately, the human staff were not frightened away as the secretary
“Witch” cast a spell that made everyone appear normal well as normal as
possible. A generous portion of fish and chips was served, after which
missing gear Mike awarded a token of esteem to the smartest Witch known
as calamity Kate and a free dinner awarded by the owner (mainly to curry
favour with the after world to bring more customers), to Norma of the
At this stage the storm clouds disappeared, and the dreadful sun forced
its way through which made all dash to their chariots to get back to the
safety of the dark side.
All the group thought it was a successful foray into the human world and
decided to do it again in another year.
