Something Wicked This Way Comes…

Written by Mark Till, 29th October 2010

Lunch Macabre...

"Let there be a spice of terror," wrote John Dickson Carr, "of dark skies and evil things."

Well, at today's Friday Lunch we certainly tried our best - or should that be worst? The jack-o'-lantern grinned its fiery grin; spiders crawled o'er the table; witch's blood (grapefruit smoothie) was greedily lapped up; the skeleton in our closet was hung up for all to see; we told ghost stories and read creepy poems (including 'Porphyria's Lover' by Robert Browning)...

Good Chris, Bad Chris...

Then there came a hollow knock at the door (which creaked open in a very sinister manner) and a mysterious visitor entered. Dracula? Dr Frankenstein? The Prince of Darkness Himself? Nope - it was Colin Gray from Hereford, with his wife Kathy and son Tom. Colin, far from being an axe-wielding maniac or slavering member of the un-dead, is one of our trained facilitators who has recently started a reading group at the Kindle Centre in Hereford. Well done, Colin - we wish you great success with it.

Thanks to Vicky Clarke and Niall Gibney for the food and decorations!
