Thursday October 31st is Halloween, and as in previous years we will be encouraging the kids to go trick or treating around the garden path. It should start around 6pm, though younger kids could be out even earlier. If you have a basement or ground floor flat and want to have your back door knocked on by ghosts and ghouls, leave your outside light on, and make sure you have a large bagful of treats at the ready. A carved pumpkin or two is also good for atmosphere.
The big garden event of the year is fast approaching. Each year the Committee puts on a massive fireworks display and bonfire on Fireworks Night. This year it will take place on Saturday 2nd November. Details are now available on the Events page.
Each year a band from the Salvation Army joins us in the garden to lead us in Christmas carols. We also sell warm mince pies and mulled wine on the night to warm you up and raise money for the Salvation Army. This year the carols will take place on Wednesday 11th December. More details will be posted on this page closer to the time.
