Pumpkin Festival fun!
On a day of glorious autumn sunshine, the Councillors from Hound Parish Council, thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful Jubilee Sailing Trust Pumpkin Festival at the Royal Victoria Country Park. It was uplifting to see so many people enjoying the event and there was a lovely community feeling to the day.
At our stall, we seemed to entertain a surprising number of the attendees with the innovative Human Fruit Machine. It was a great way to meet people and talk about our parish and the issues we are concerned about. At one point, even His Worship, the Mayor of Eastleigh, Bruce Tennent, stopped by and was persuaded to join in with the fruit machine.
There were lots of stalls from different organisations and companies, including One Community, and the event was a great success. Many thanks to the organisers for all their hard work.
