Last weekend we had a short caravanning trip to Rufforth near York, it was not with our usual group, but still park of The Camping and Caravanning Club.  
In our caravan, getting ready.
On Saturday evening there was a Halloween party in the room, we had been told of this at time of booking and were offered the chance to be in `fancy dress` I politely declined this and stated that I would be in my usual attire for a Saturday night out.

This proved a bit hard to believe for some, who commented that they thought I was not dressing-up and I replied no this is how I go out like all year!

The room was quite well decorated.
However today is Halloween and I will leave you with this link to one of my favourite new bands, Bad Pollyanna , The Living Dead from 24th May 2013 at The Gasworks Bradford.
You can just see me in the middle of the 2nd row.

The Skeletal Family, Bradford

On Thursday night I once again braved my luck and headed down to Bradford. The bus was 20 minutes late and despite printing the Google directions I went out of Bradford bus station by the wrong exit and got lost again!
I eventually found my way to the club Vampire just in time to catch the support band Dawn of Elysium, who I first saw a couple of months ago and as before they played a great set.
The Skeletal Family, Vampire Bradford
A quick turn around on stage and it was time for the main act The Skeletal Family, who are from Keighley the Yorkshire Dales Mill Town who`s most famous residents were The Bronte Sisters. Everyone here will know of Wuthering Heights etc.

That must be something to follow, with tonight been the warm-up for their American tour starting on Sunday and was also a bit of a “See you” gig as we say in Yorkshire.

The Skeletal Family, Vampire Bradford
Although I am not a hard-core fan of The Family I soon could be the set was great and I really recommend going to see them if you get the chance. The classic Gothic line up of 3 guitars, drums and female tick all the boxes for me.

Jewellery and belongings found with decomposing body of young woman in Bolton UK

Pictures of jewellery found on the decomposing body of a young woman have been released by police in a bid to identify her and work out how she died.
The grim discovery was made near Manchester Road, Bolton adjacent to the River Croal at Raikes Clough last Thursday tea-time.

Police have so far failed to establish the identity of the woman, how she died or what her final movements were.

Now they have released photos of a distinctive bat necklace worn by the woman - thought to be aged 18-25 -  as well as other items found on her body including a Sony Walkman MP3 player, a PNY USB memory stick,  an Aldi shopping trolley token with a black cat on the back and a Sandisk 16GB microSD memory card.

A post-mortem by a Home Office pathologist failed to establish a cause of death.

The woman was approximately 18-25 years old, probably white, 5ft2 to 5ft4 tall, wore size 12 clothes and had dark brown or lack long hair fastened in a pony tail with a red elasticated bobble. She also had a number of facial piercings and pierced navel.

She was wearing a dark navy blue or black duffle style coat with fur trimmed collar, black tight fitting trousers, a tee shirt with a diamante cat on the front, black cardigan, four to four and half size shin high 14 hole black Doc Martin boots.

Jewellery was also found on the body and police have now issued images to see if anyone recognises them.

Det Insp Michael Fraser from GMP said: "When we searched the body, we found a number of items on her that we hope can help identity her. She was also wearing a distinctive necklace with a bat pendant and had a chain secured to her waist band on which were a four inch pink 'mini maglite' style torch, an Aldi shopping trolley token with a black cat on the back, a PNY USB memory stick, a Sandisk 16GB microSD memory card and a Sony Walkman MP3 player. Within the pocket of her trousers was a train ticket and timetable for the Edinburgh to Manchester Airport train line.

"We still do not know how she died but our main priority is to find out who she is. Extensive enquiries have taken place and we are currently looking at missing person files across Greater Manchester and the rest of the UK. However, so far, we have not been able to identify her and more importantly, inform her family that they have sadly lost a loved one.

"We believe her body may have been there for a few weeks or even months and I would ask anyone who may have seen a woman in this area who matches the description given to contact us.

"Alternatively, do you recognise any of the images or know of someone who owns such items? If you do, we are keen to hear from you as the information you supply may help us piece together her final movements and eventually help us to find out who she is."

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 5599 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
