Parish Council Pumpkin Event

For the last seven 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, again with the help of Committee Members from Brackenhill Allotment Association, a planting session was arranged so that the hildren could learn more about the plant, how to look after them and how to make them grow as large as possible.    


The children gathered on Friday 13 October to show off their harvested pumpkins.It was a lovely afternoon with children arriving with pumpkins of all shapes, colours and sizes.  The heaviest pumpkins weighed in at 16kgs.  Edward and Noah brought those pumpkins.The Parish Council would like to thank the Allotment Association Committee for their continued support with this free event for local children.
