Literacy for us includes a wide range of skills and competencies and a project like this has enabled many to be further developed.
After the cut there is a great video of the making of the Polmugater.

To make it a bit more fun we dressed as Steampunk Zombie Hunters. The zombies weren’t in on it, but played along… we were slaughtered in under a minute

But this year it’s going to be different! With my friends we’ve set up an official Website and we’re running a small pre-Hallowe’en game too. Should be fun and hopefully something your readers might enjoy or get involved in.”
