At Victoria Square
NO! Pumpkins at The Square!
This year WE WILL NOT be collecting pumpkins for the wildlife of The Square
Please DO NOT leave any pumpkins at our Community Garden.
Please DO NOT leave any pumpkins on the ground around The Square (or anywhere else in Penarth, public or private) - they are poisonous to hedgehogs!!!
DISPOSING OF YOUR PUMPKIN
If uncarved and undecorated - why not eat (food grade only), or find a local farm or animal sanctuary that may take them for feed.
If carved but undecorated, or decorated with natural, non-toxic materials - Put into your own compost.
If decorated with non-edible materials (e.g. glitter, marker pen etc.) place in your VoG Council food waste bin.
REMOVE ALL CANDLES AND WAX FIRST!
Any pumpkins left at The Square will be treated at litter and removed, either to be composted or disposed or (if decorated with inedible materials), disposal via VoG Council food waste.
October 23d - 29th is International Bat Week.
We will be conducting a Bat Watch Walk with an opportunity to both watch and listen to the bats, and find out more about one of the must unique mammal species on the planet.
