2023 Scarecrow Festival

A massive thanks to everyone who came out to the Secret Garden to support our Scarecrow Festival last Saturday! We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to all our stall holders. This event would not have been possible without all our brilliant and gracious volunteers. From our very own NWDS staff, Secret Garden volunteers, as well as some of our family and friends.
