Events and Competitions
Front Garden and Scarecrow Competition Organiser: Carnival Comm.
sponsored by: McCARTHY STONE
A cared for front garden or hanging basket, whatever the size or shape, encourages passers by to stop and chat and hopefully become interested in improving their own frontage. For this Carnival we have added a bit more fun and interest by introducing the addition of scarecrows in the hope of fostering more “chatabilty”. Both events are meant to be fun.
Carnival Procession and Fete Organiser: Carnival Comm.
Summer Concert Organiser: Crowthorne Symphony Orchestra

Begin with singing in circle, a selection of specially chosen mantras accompanied by the guitar, shruti & drum. You will be encouraged to use the space to allow deeper connection to yourself. Whether that be picking up a rattle and shaking along and/or singing or just absorbing the vibrations.
