Things are coming together for the Fun and Frights night this Sunday.
Last night, 14 year old Henry Stanhope delivered 50 pumpkins (along with help from his Dad); they are currently being gutted in the office ready for carving during the event.

Volunteer Will donated apples from his garden orchard and I collected some more from Concord College this morning, these will be prepped ready for apple bobbing on Sunday.
Lots of thought and planning is going into the creation of the Spooky Tunnel and I will be digging up the remains of Mr Ghoul to put in the feely boxes along his Creepy Trail – eyeballs, scabs, skin –the lot!
If you’re not running around Ghost Hunting, then Smoky Cauldrons will be in place to keep you warm. Resident Story Teller will be in the Haunted Classroom and just in case you forgot your scary outfit, we’ll have a Face Painter on standby to turn you into a gruesome monster! At 6.30pm the Fancy Dress Competition will be held, every child that enters gets a prize!
Phew! When you are ready for a sit down – The Cabin will be open serving hot food and the Tea Room will also be open serving hot drinks and cake. Now with our new alcohol license in place, local ales and wines will also be available.
