It's officially Autumn, the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness has begun and time for the Golden Hill Community Garden Harvest Fair on September 17 between 1pm-4pm. 

This is a much loved annual, local community event to celebrate a successful year of bountiful produce and delicious fruit and veg grown by volunteers in the Garden. Recent community work worth celebrating has included summer holiday 'Family Days' for children with special educational needs or disabilities to enjoy with their family and siblings. 

The Harvest Fair will boast an array of traditional fair games for children (and grown ups!) with apple bobbing, bat the rat, treasure hunts and fabulous veg monster craft sessions.

 This year children will be delighted and entertained by storytellers and as always, there will be pond dipping and face painting and other free 

activities. 

Live music, local choirs, delicious cake, pizza from the clay oven and other seasonal refreshments are all on offer. 

Look out for the raffle prize of an enormous box of veg grown in the gardens. 

Put the date in your calendar and get ready to join in the merriment!
