Pumpkin Report

We had a great turn out of members at this years Pumpkin Festival. and the star of our show was our own "Chitty Chitty Cho Choo" who was swarmed by our young visitors, while their parents took photo's of them, the picture shows the big smile facing the crowds queing up to come in for more than half an our before we opened, and some of the team setting up the stand.

A new record was set for the UK's heaviest pumpkin grown outdoors, which was cultivated from a seed costing £1,250. Grower Matthew Oliver said he was "over the moon" after his pumpkin weighed-in at 95st (605kg) He now holds the UK record for the biggest pumpkin grown outdoors.
