The first half term of the school year has finally arrived! And with the lead-up to Halloween too, there’s plenty of fun things to do in Harborne.
Firstly, the Harborne Pumpkin Parade is back! Join us from Friday 21st-Monday 31st October for spooktacular fun. Using the trail sheet, located the 18 pumpkins dotted around Harborne businesses – they will each have a letter too, which spells out a hidden message.
If you find the message and return your sheets to Silver & Love, you could win some Halloween prizes. To read more, and download your sheets, read the Harborne Pumpkin Parade blog here.
