The clocks have gone back, and November is just around the calendar corner.
Here are four fun things you can try next month.
It’s undoubtedly going to be a different kind of Bonfire Night on November 5. Authorities across the UK are expecting a lot smaller, back garden, family events due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
To ensure you have a safe night, it’s worthwhile checking out the advice from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA). See the link at the end of this article.
The annual festival of the moustache takes place this month. Movember has grown rapidly (pun intended) since it started in Australia in 2004. It has its roots in Melbourne where two friends convinced 30 mates to go with the mo.
It’s a fun way to add some fur to your face and raise funds for men’s health charities.
Christmas Shopping Lists
Let’s face it 2020 has been a year to forget so any excuse to take our minds off things must be welcomed. And what better way to do that than to start making your Christmas lists?
You could even set yourself a challenge and see what is on your list that you can buy from local independent stores in Gloucestershire.
Family Movie Nights
Now the darker evenings start at 4.30 pm and the weather’s getting chillier it’s the perfect excuse to get cosy on the sofa and watch a movie with your family.
And these ideas can help you make it even more fun.
- Agree on a theme for the night. It could be sci-fi, western, horror or even romance.
- Make sure you have plenty of cinema-style snacks handy like popcorn, tortilla chips, sweets etc.
- Create your own tickets – Kids will love making their own cinema tickets that need to be shown to ensure a seat in time for the big movie.
There’s plenty to do across Gloucestershire in November if we put our minds to it.
And people are still looking to move to make a fresh start in 2021.
Whatever you do, have fun, and say safe.
