A fancy dress procession will leave from The Forty at 6pm and another from the Oval at Cholsey Meadows at 6:30pm. Please dress up, bring a pumpkin if you have carved one, a torch, and wear high visibility clothing. Parents are asked to supervise their children. The processions meet at the corner of Newlands and Ferry Lane then we make our way to place pumpkins in and around the story tent and to  the bonfire on the cricket pitch.
