Firstly, thank you to everyone who entered the 3rd annual ghost story competition!

The entries were of an amazingly high standard, and they were a pleasure to read! Among the stories were tragedies, horror and sentimentalism. We feel that the shortlisted entries which will make up the book "Spiriting Through Christmas" is an excellent showcase of the talent on offer in the competition.

So...the moment we've all been waiting for....!

Drumroll, please...
