Saturday 28 October 2017 – 12 noon until 3pm
Pumpkins in the Park has been running for many years in association with Clare Social Club. It is a very popular event for both children and parents.
It is held on the weekend nearest to Halloween, and starts at Clare Park Centre in the Country Park. The children follow a map and must find pictures of ghosts, witches and ghouls etc, which they must count. The trail finishes at the Social Club where there are arts and crafts and the bar is open for parents to have a well-deserved drink (if required).
Volunteers are dressed as spooky characters around the park and fun questions are asked along the way at various points. When answered correctly the children are given a letter of the alphabet, which eventually will make a word linked to Halloween.
A prize is given to the child at the end with the correct count on the pictures.
To take part, simply turn up on the day and register yourself and your child(ren) and then off you go on the fun trail! It’s as simple as that. We hope to see you there.

The Clare Christmas Fair presents the perfect opportunity for you to do some of your Xmas shopping in the centre of town without having to travel elsewhere.

You will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of something warming to enjoy while you browse the stalls, which will offer a variety of lovely goods including jewellery, chocolates, cheeses, dolls, collectable teddies, ceramics, turned wooden items, artwork, Christmas wreaths, candles, felted gifts, toys, cards, decorative and stained glass and much, much more….PLUS the chance to buy one – or two! – items from the delicious Clare festive pudding range which now includes luxury chocolate and sticky toffee sauces.
Other refreshments will be available and you will be able to sit, relax and listen to some carols.
There will also be the opportunity to buy some raffle tickets: great prizes and all proceeds will go to help maintain our lovely church.
The fair will be open from 5-8pm on Friday 24th November and from 10am-4pm on Saturday 25th and admission is free – this truly is a wonderful start to the holiday season!
