Remembrance Day - 11th November 11am
A new type of Drive Through came to Ashingdon
Trick or Treat
The committee had a lovely time at the drive through on Halloween Night. The weather was kind to us and with a spookie projection, Screaming and Cackling Witches, Beetle Juice, a Dancing Skeleton, a roaming Zombie, Morticia Addams and a Devil Woman we proceeded to do our best to provide a fright night for the little ones of Ashingdon and Hawkwell to remember. The children so brilliantly dressed blew our socks off and it took all we had to try and scare them more than they scared us. We lost, many sweets were handed out! Though, I must say, I was rather disappointed not to get the promised little ones offered for my tea!
A huge thank you to Constable Landscapes for providing us with the traffic cones we so desperately needed, at such short notice, to keep the car park organized and safe.
The Event was well attended and the committee thank all of you for your kind comments and gifts.
