Halloween Will Soon Be Upon Us

Autumn has arrived with odd foggy mornings and the trees turning colour and dropping their leaves. It being October it is also the Hallowen month and will be celebrated on Glen Allotments with a Halloween evening on Friday 26 October. A similar format to last year will see the gates open at 6 p.m. for various attractions like Raffles, Tombola and refreshments. From requests from last year's event the refreshments will include the usual Tea and Coffee with Hot Dogs, Spicy Spare Ribs, Bacon Banjos and Jacket Potatoes. Events for the children include the Ghost Walk at 6:45 p.m. for which there will be a modest charge of 20p per child. At 7:45 p.m. is the Carved Pumpkin Competition. So get busy selecting your pumpkin and carving it to produce something interesting that is going to catch the judges eye. Please note that, this event is aimed at children under the age of twelve and is not suitable for older children.

Sadly, Ann and I are going to be away in the Far East and will miss this event but we'll be back for the Christmas Fair that will be held in the Heworth Church Hall on Melrosegate. More on that later.
