Things to do this autumn

A family looking at pumpkins growing

Hallowe'en at Greenway 

Something strange is going on at Greenway. The pumpkins which had been growing in the Walled Garden under the watchful eye of the Greenway gardeners have disappeared. They can't have completely vanished - can your little ones help to track them down? There will be a reward up for grabs if they can find them all.
