EVENT PHOTOS - Pumpkin Day 22nd October 2017


What a hectic and successful day with a total attendance of 342 ( 158 children! ). We collected £387.20 [Less expenses] from donations, home made soup and the pumpkin carving. The weather was kind to us and had the event been a day earlier we would have been affected by Storm Brian.
Forty pumpkins were grown at the garden for carving, but we had to buy extra 50 pumpkins (29 on the Sunday) to make a total of ninety that were carved out! The soup was very tasty but we are very sorry some people missed out. It is estimated Lesley, Darren, Mary, Daniela and Laurie made 24 litres of soup.
For three hours non stop Nick Meech ran a wood work session with children which was very popular. Many children enjoyed making mallets. This session was funded as part of the Signage project under Heritage Lottery Application.   Ben Fairlight-Edwards displayed his words in wood work.
We were pleased to welcome the Mayor (Councillor Judy Rogers) and Deputy Mayor (Councillor Nigel Sinden) of Hastings who came to see the event.
Thanks to all who helped to make this another exciting  event.
