Children in Chislehurst will continue to be told ghoulish ghost stories after a local history group received a grant from the Kent Archaelogical Society.
The ‘Chislehurst Chillers’ are a voluntary brand of The Chislehurst Society’s history group, who tell spooky stories to 10-year-old children to inspire their interest in their local area.
Their grant of £400 will go towards the running costs of the ‘Chillers’, and help produce CDs and research stories of spies, murders and executions in Chislehurst Caves.
Group leader, Joanne Friel, said: “Our events are humours - inspired by Horrible Histories. The children are encouraged to attend in costume.
“Parents can attend and there is appropriate adult supervision, with plenty of time for colouring activities - we don’t want the children to have nightmares.”
