Halloween at Notcutts.


Ghosts and ghouls are descending on Notcutts Garden Centre as part of a half-term Halloween hunt.

The free Halloween Hunt will be held at the garden centre in Hatfield Road over half term, from Saturday, October 21 to Sunday, October 29.

Children visiting Notcutts can pick up an activity sheet before hunting for ghoulish Halloween characters hidden around the garden centre, with a free prize for every entry.

Budding young witches and wizards can also stock up on spooky supplies at the garden centre, from traditional pumpkins to outdoor lanterns.

Manager Chris Neophytou said: “Some spooky characters are lurking in our haunted herbaceous borders and frightening foliage, and we need your help to find them! We look forward to welcoming families to Notcutts this half-term for some fun with our Halloween hunt.”

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.


Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
