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.
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 :
