October Half Term

I can't believe it's October already, can you? Normally we would be gearing up for a fun Halloween full of games and Trick or Treating, but of course it's going to be very different this year. You may have seen that lots of locals are joining in 'The Big Pumpkin Trail', and you can find out more info about that here. All you have to do is pop a picture of a pumpkin (or a real one!) in your window or in front of your house and then local families can walk around and spot them, like we were all doing with the Rainbows during lockdown. So many families are still shielding, or trying to maintain strict social distancing and so there are ideas and signs to help you if you'd like to get involved but not have Trick or Treaters at your door.

Speaking of pumpkins, there are plenty of places to grab yours locally. Here are the ones I know of -
