Celebrate the Halloween season at The Grow Project on Sunday 30 October, 10am – 2pm.

Pumpkin carving, chutney making, a hot bowl of soup, sausages and curry to warm your bellies are all on offer at the community art garden at Rodborough School for just £5.


Councillor Jenny Else, Waverley’s Portfolio Holder for Arts and Culture, said: “There are quarterly festival events at the community garden starting this Halloween with chutney making, curry eating and pumpkin carving on Sunday 30 October, 10am – 2pm. All are welcome and do watch out for the next one at Christmas.


“The £5 entry fee covers the costs and any proceeds will benefit the community and keep the project flourishing.


“Over the next year there will be many activities to take part in where you can get together with others from the local community and have a chance to participate in growing fruit and vegetables. Perhaps you have moved and no longer have a garden in which case you will be made very welcome and you can share your skills and knowledge. If you have a spare Saturday morning, from 10am-12pm, why not take part in The Grow Project?”


There are opportunities to volunteer at monthly winter working parties, starting with bulb planting on Saturday 5 November. To join the parties contact Waverley’s Arts and Cultural Services Manager, Charlotte Hall, by emailing or calling 01483 523390.
