Secret Garden Launch and Bonfire Night

Secret Garden Launch and Bonfire Night

On Saturday allotment members and friends from the community joined us for a double celebration – the launch of our Secret Garden and Bonfire Night.

Secret Garden launch

After a year of building and planting our Secret Garden was officially launched with a tea party.  Tea and cake was available and there were craft activities for the children.

We had visitors from Groundwork, the charity that has been working with Tesco on the Bags of Help scheme that funded the Secret Garden.

 

Bonfire Night

As darkness fell, the Secret Garden party gave way to our Bonfire Night extravaganza!  As well as the usual fireworks, bonfire and supper the Woodcraft Folk were there to help members toast marshmallows, make damper bread and roast cinnamon apples over the fire.  And of course, the Secret Garden looked fabulous with it’s new lights.

  

Well done to everybody involved for all the hard work to create two events for Members, family and friends.  More photographs are available on our Facebook page.

Brilliant Bonfire Bash!

I thoroughly enjoyed our Bonfire night celebrations this year.  Bonfire nights at the Allotment are always good, and seem to get better each year. This year the format was slightly different….

first the bonfire was lit… bonfirethen we had our Bonfire supper of baked potatoes, cheese and beans, sausages, pumpkin soup and spiced apple punch. This was followed by a firework display…bonfire and fireworkIt was a fantastic evening. A huge thanks to the Committee who organised the event, cooked the delicious food and set up the clubhouse, to Paul for building our huge bonfire and Tony and Paul for setting off the fireworks.  And of course to our members who turned up, brought fireworks and enjoyed the evening.
