Rain, wind and sleet: it was the perfect setting for ghostly stories! Cold and darkness did not deter the 33 brave and curious souls who turned up last Saturday to stroll through Sydenham village with a storyteller.

Lions Rob, Gary, Cindy and Christine acted as escorts to the two groups, carrying lanterns and wearing reflective vests to keep the walkers safe…from non-supernatural threats such as traffic.

It was Lion and storyteller Joanne Ankers who dreamed up the idea of a haunted walk as a fundraiser for the Sydenham & District Lions Club. Her call for village ghost stories brought her some good tales of ghosts, grave robbers and unexplained events, which she worked into a 45-minute tour of the village. (One house on Brewery Street has reports of an old woman who sometimes stands at the foot of the stairs and shakes her finger at anyone who dares to venture downstairs at night.)

The Lions accepted freewill donations from participants, and the event was so popular that they are thinking of doing it again next year. If you have an interesting or curious tale about Sydenham, Joanne would like to hear from you: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
