Artistic youngsters have unleashed their creative sides to create a Hallowe’en masterpiece in Ely.

David Learner, owner of Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in High Street, invited a local school to create a spooky display for the shop window in Ely News last month.

And Ely’s Highfield School, which caters for children with additional needs, leapt at the chance.

Caroline Pledger, arts co-ordinator at Highfield, said: “We are always keen to be involved in the local community and the pupils love to show their work to people.

“Lots of classes were keen to be involved and we have work from Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 classes.

“I’ve been pleased by the variety of media used, including ceramics, papier maché and weaving.”

The sweet shop’s window is now jam-packed with spiders’ webs, cats, rats and other ghoulish goings on in the run up to Hallowe’en.

David said: “The display is simply brilliant and the pupils should be really proud of themselves!”
