The story of a community garden – Part 2

community garden
Carswell School’s Reflective Sensory Garden is at last beginning to look more like a restful place, but it’s taken lots of hard work. Governors, staff, parents, neighbours and friends have spent many weekends laying out the beds and shifting hard-core, compost and soil.

They are hoping to be able to lay the paths before the winter sets in. There will be quite a lot to do with pegging down the weed membrane and then lifting, carrying and distributing the path aggregates, as well as compacting the self- binding gravel. If you’d like to help them, come along 9:30-12:30 on Saturday 10th December.

Growing Moustaches in November for Charity

I expect that after midnight a lot of men are going to shave off their moustaches…
Growing Moustaches
Gary and Matthew from Fabulous Flowers have been part of the growing movement growing moustaches during November to raise funds for Prostate Cancer research.

They also got listed as one of the best florists in the UK in the November Tatler Party Guide. Find out more from their blog.

Find a Fairy entry forms need to be in by Thursday

Find a Fairy
On Thursday this week the Christmas Extravaganza takes place in Abingdon. The Parade is at 6:45pm. The lights get turned on at 7pm by Nicola Blackwood MP. The winners of the ‘Find a Fairy’ competition will be announced at 8:15pm just before the fireworks.

Since Saturday children (and parents) have been going round the town, finding the fairies – one for each letter of the alphabet – in shop windows. I’m sure ER Goffs will still have some Entry Forms, and this is all the details you need to supply :
