- Spooks darkened the air above Holmehill on Sunday 29th October, when we held our Spooky Fun event, a perennial favourite with young families. As usual it was in the Braeport Centre. This was the fifth year that we’ve offered blood-curdling games, story-telling, and tea & cakes. After lots of activities, eats and storytelling, a gaggle of excited children went up the path from Braeport to the parting of the ways at the top on a perfect night – dark (just in time) cool, crisp, clear with an amazing residual west light creating really sharp silhouettes on the horizon and lots of leaves to kick. But all eyes were focused on the spooky subjects to be found closer to hand! Sound effects courtesy of our resident Tawny Owl. Thanks to all the spooky helpers.
- Chris Spray continues his monthly wildlife blogs.
- As usual we were at the Fling by the River. On Saturday 27th May 2017 the Holmehill marquee welcomed old and new friends.
