Once again I’m super busy with work. We’re getting ready for the half-term and Halloween events at Sarehole Mill including a pumpkin flotilla on the mill pond! I have a pretty crucial role in that I’ve volunteered to sit in the back of the canoe and hold the rope with all the floating pumpkins on it! Hopefully I won’t fall in the pond…Check back towards the end of the month for any photos of me looking soggy draped in green pond weed!
I’ve dug up a taster of the cemetery events happening this month for you, but it’s October – go forth and check your local cemetery for events! Comment below if you are planning to attend a special spooky tour or search for ghosties!
