This Christmas Halls Garden Centres raised money and awareness for a range of local charities including Sutton Coldfield Stroke Club.
Today Liz Topliss, Sutton Coldfield Stroke Club Organiser visited Halls and was handed a donation by Nathan Dodd from the Garden Centre.
This was on top of the money collected during two days in December when members of the Club had a stand and sold cupcakes made by the Garden Room Coffee Shop.
Liz thanked Nathan for all the support received from Kay Hall and the team when they were at the garden centre especially the delicious home made cup cakes which flew out.
We look forward to seeing them again soon to help promote this very worthwhile charity.
We received this letter from the Stroke Club on the 21/1/13.
Create a Halloween party in your house or garden with ideas and suggestions from David Coton that will keep your children and neighbours thrilled and spooked on the 31st October.
Looking for some advice on how to decorate your garden for halloween? David Coton has some great ideas to help you create a horror themed garden to scare your neighbours and any trick & treaters who come to your door.
Used originally to frighten away evil spirits, now placed near the front door to deter trick or treaters, carved pumpkins have been part of Halloween for a very long time. Here Martyn Loach explains the process of creating the scariest pumpkin in your street.
To grow the biggest, scariest pumpkin in time for Halloween isn't easy as they take some time to mature and prefer a warm climate. To have the best chance of success Martyn Loach recommends sowing seed indoors during April and then planting out in late May or June.
