There was a great party for Hallowe’en, held at the Backpackers Lodge and attended by all the children.   Commemoration of Guy Fawkes’ bid for parliamentary reform took the form of a giant bonfire, tactfully relocated closer to the shoreline now that the original site has been transformed into a pleasure garden.  (The garden is looking great, lots of volunteers have got it all ready for winter, nicely weeded and richly seaweeded – a credit to all concerned.)[Apologies – photographs were taken but without wifi the editor is unable to access them.]
