Welcome to October edition of the Hagley Village News.

Autumn is in the air; the leaves have fallen, the bobble hats have escaped the draws and the jumpers are lining the wardrobes. October is an exciting month as its Halloween. REMEMBER if you are uncomfortable opening your doors to the trick or treater's then print off a downloadable poster (or ask a friend to do this) and display it on your window. If you do like giving treats to Halloween visitors, make sure that the sweet stash is topped up. Check here for an Autumnal inspired drink.
