Parish Council Pumpkin Event

For the last eight years Ackworth Parish Council has invited local children to take part in the Parish Council’s annual pumpkin event, which sees children planting seeds in the spring then gathering in October to show off their pumpkins.

This year, the event will take place on Saturday 28 April at Brackenhill Allotments from 11am til 1pm.  With the help of Committee Members from Brackenhill Allotment Association, the planting session will help children could learn more about the plant, how to look after them and how to make them grow as large as possible.  So we can ensure we have enough seeds and plant pots, please use the Contact Us page to register your interest.
