Light Party is our big annual community event for families, generously hosted by Equippers Thames.
We run this as a safe alternative to Halloween, to bless the families in our local community. This year the theme is 'Under the Sea'.
This year the event will be held at Thames Racecourse from 5:30-7:00pm on Saturday 31st October.
There will be lots to do including face painting, bouncy castles, candy floss and FREE food. Prizes for best dressed in theme.
It’s a night not to be missed!!
We will also have a quieter play area available for younger children.

‘Let’s think Pink’ is a fundraising event for both The Breast Cancer Foundation and Look Good, Feel Better. Let’s think Pink is an opportunity for us to unite for the ones we love in order to raise awareness and support the children, teenagers, men and woman in our community who are battling cancer. Not only will we be lighting up our iconic Carnegie building Hot Pink for the month of October, we have a series of light-hearted guest speakers who are just as enthusiastic and passionate about the charities we are fundraising for as we are.
