Bonfire Night this year is Saturday 3rd November. We light a huge bonfire in the garden, and put on a massive fireworks display. See the Events page for details. All residents and their guests are welcome, it’s one of the undoubted highlights of living on the garden!
Wednesday 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.
We have also set the date for Christmas Carols in the Garden. The Salvation Army Band will come to lead us through the Christmas classics on Tuesday 11th December, with mulled wine and hot mince pies to warm us up. More details closer to the time.
