ALMOST £1,000 was raised at the Golden Hill Community Garden’s Harvest Fair.

The sun shone as hundreds of visitors were treated to an afternoon of music from Dave Green, McDowell, BadgerTrap, Dob Dob Dob, Jetfly and BOSOM.

Children were spoilt with a variety of activities from pond dipping, face painting, and apple bobbing.

Creating vegetable monsters was a particular favourite, with vegetables donated from Gardeners Patch in Gloucester Road.

Those with a little bit more energy were able to make pedal powered fruit smoothies with Ape Project CIC.

The Growing for Gold Team – the new pilot project at Golden Hill Community Garden which works with adults with learning difficulties – made bird feeders with pinecones, peanut butter and sunflower seeds.

As usual, an array of cakes were made by volunteers, with delicious soup and pizza cooked on site.

The £973 which was raised will help further support the community and educational work carried out by the garden.
