So as it says in my little profile I am a Working Mum. As a mum and wife I get a few hours to myself of an evening if I am lucky. If I am really lucky then I get those few hours with my husband.
Well sometimes I feel as if a full time job in a hotel, and being a full time mum just doesn’t take up enough of my time and energy (said no mother ever!). So I have managed to talk myself into volunteer work. I organise and run a Pancake Race & Dinner event every February to help raise funds for Tenby’s RNLI. On average we raise £500 – £600 each year. So this event rewards with great satisfaction of helping a very worthy cause.
This year I have talked myself into helping a local shopkeeper (Lollies Traditional Sweet Shop in Tenby) and we are building up the event she has run for the last seven years called Tenby’s Trick or Treat Trail. This event allows the smaller children to be involved in Halloween without putting the fear of god into the parents while they knok on strangers doors. This event goes on a guided trail around the shops and local business’s in the Town. It has become so popular that more than 300 children and adults of all ages have started to join in the fun. So for 2016 we are taking it up a notch. We have organised a Zombie Walk.
The Zombie Walk has become overwhelmingly popular all around the world and with the cult following of The Walking Dead it was only a matter of time before it made it’s way to little old Tenby Town in Pembrokeshire.
We will be gathering to start the walk at the entrance of the town cemetery (how spooky is that) we have a hearse for the crowd to follow into the town centre and even a photo opportunity with hearse. As if that wasn’t enough we have arranged for a Halloween disco to follow. There will be spooky dancing, games and even prizes for the best fancy dress.
Oh my! as if my life is not busy enough as it is and I have talked myself into this. On the other hand I LOVE these sorts of events. FREE, FUN and a little bit of special fx makeup. Truth be told I am like a pig in shit. OH I really do hope this goes well and plenty of people turn up.
Wish me luck.
