Tammy Kent, founder of Tammy’s One Stop Party Shop, talks about her busy weekend attending events
Saturday started well, when my friends Kirsty Truman and Amy Mondey opened a new beauty salon in Forton Road called Dotties, and they were doing free Halloween nail painting.
Then I took my children to our local Simon Says meeting at The Haven in Bridgemary.
Simon Says is a charity for bereaved children and meets in Gosport every last Saturday of the month.
This month they ventured out into the forest, sat around a fire and filled in a calendar with birthdays of their angels before enjoying a snack and playing with bubbles.
Meanwhile the teenagers hung out indoors making pumpkins remembering their loved ones.
We then got our Halloween outfits on and went into Gosport Precinct to enjoy the LOVE GOSPORT event.
We were entertained by my daughter Lacey-Love, while enjoying hot dogs and hot chocolates from Katie’s.
En Ex, Vape 4 Life and Daves Tackle stayed open late for evening shoppers too.
It was a great evening and it was so good to see so many people all dressed up and laughing together as a community.
The next LOVE GOSPORT event will be on Monday, December 21, in Gosport Precinct, when stalls, food, music and festive fun will be aplenty and maybe a visit from a special guest with gifts for the children.
Then we popped into the Fox Tavern to see landlady Charlene Jacob where the shots were free if you were in costume!
Our evening was completed at the super-friendly WPM, where there was a disco as well as some lovely food including, chilli, hot dogs and curry made by Steve Trowern.
Our weekend was completed watching the fireworks at Explosion Museum, so many smiling happy faces.
There was an amazing display with a fire performance by Simon Chainey.
Gosport is such a great place to live with so much going on.
Make sure you pop in and see Kay Allen in the tourist information centre.
Or look at Whats Going On In Gosport on Facebook so you don’t miss out on the wonderful events that Gosport has in store for the rest of 2015.
The next event at Tammy’s One Stop Party Shop is a Remembrance Day coffee morning on Wednesday, November 11 from 10am-midday.
There will be a two-minute silence at 11am.
Poppies will be on sale with all money going to the Poppy Appeal.
