An update on the Pumpkin Trail, which starts at Haigh Woodlands Park this coming Sat (24th Oct -1st Nov).

The trail sheet can be either downloaded from FB / Winston's Wish website.
You can also pick one up from the café at Haigh Stables from Saturday onwards.

It's a while since I've been to Astley Park, Chorley, Mick, but Derian House's upcoming Winter Sparkle event there looks like it'll be fantastic:

Jo Anne We always park there now and then get a bit of exercise by walking through the park to the town centre.

The woman ( who came from Ince) who was working in the hall last week told us about the Winter Sparkle show thats coming up.
