Pop along for park's Pumpkin Patch day
Published on: 02 Oct 2017
FAMILIES are being invited to pop along to Page Park and take part in an autumnal fun day later this month.
Friends of Page Park have organised a Pumpkin Patch event on Saturday October 28 from 11am-3.30pm.
People can take part in a carved pumpkin competition by bringing along their own creations.
There will also be a fancy dress competition for youngsters. This will be split into two categories - best home-made costume and best purchased/professional costume.
DJ Del Boy will be playing tunes from the bandstand along with children's activities and a magic show.
There will also be games, rides, a real owl and owl talk, Thriller dance classes in the Nest and facepainting.
Steph Purser, vice chair of the Friends, said: "We wanted to organise a fun day to bring people out into the park in autumn.
"Hopefully it will be a lovely autumn day with all the various coloured leaves in the park.
"It's going to be fantastic, a real celebration of autumn in Page Park."
The Friends are looking for anyone who would like to set up a stall linked to autumn, pumpkins or nature. They are also keen to enlist the skills of a pumpkin carver.
Anyone who is interested should contact the Friends via their website www.friendsofpagepark.co.uk
