Get planting now for pumpkin competition

GREEN-fingered people are encouraged to start thinking about a fundraising competition later this year.

Ipswich Allotment Holders’ Association hosts an annual sponsored pumpkin growing competition in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). Prizes are awarded for the heaviest and best decorated pumpkins with categories for adults, children and school groups.

The weigh-in and prizegiving will be held at Gainsborough Labour Club in Landseer Road on Saturday, October 26.

For limited free seeds, sponsorship forms and growing tips, call John on 01473 716424 or Dan on 01473 718744.
