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 took place on Saturday 28 April at Brackenhill Allotments.   With the help of Committee Members from Brackenhill Allotment Association, the planting session helped children learn more about the plant, how to look after them and how to make them grow as large as possible.  


The children will be gathering again in October to show off their harvested pumpkins.

.The Parish Council would like to thank the Allotment Association Committee for their continued support with this free event for local children.
