Anisha Shala won first prize in the Halloween short story competition, which was held in White Lion Square on Saturday, October 29.

Her story is below:

‘Once upon a time not so long ago, there lived wicked, evil witch called Alexandra.

‘She was just stirring a poison and called Princess Diana: “I am coming your way”. “Excuse me”. “Bye”. The wicked witch started walking towards the house.

‘She called again, “I can see you”. “What, you can see me?” “Yes I can, where are you?”. She crept right next to her…. AAAAAHHHHH! Bang, the princess was never seen again.’

The runner-up was Amber Doron-Connon, four, from Hatfield, who won tickets to Campus West.

Deputy Mayor Lynne Sparks, who judged the competition, said: “There were some fantastic stories to choose from and it was great to see so many entries, but I really enjoyed reading Anisha’s in particular.

“I hope both Anisha and Amber enjoy their prizes.”
