Lovely weather brought out a large number of people to our Autumn Open Day at Castlebank Horticulture Centre on Saturday 17 September. The produce stall did a roaring trade in vegetables and plants which had been grown at the centre. The Tombola was a sell out and everybody enjoyed sitting in the sunshine with a cup of tea and tucking into the lovely home baking. We did a steady trade in Castlebank Christmas Cards and Quiz sheets. These are still available if you missed your chance to purchase them on Saturday. Just enquire at the Horticulture Centre. The children enjoyed a treasure hunt in the park and also having their faces painted.
Many thanks to all who helped or donated items. We raised in excess of £400 which will go towards the park’s restoration.
