Get involved with our super spooky pumpkin carving comp!
Published: 26 October 2020
Get involved with our pumpkin carving competition and be in with a chance to win special prizes.
Over the past few years, our Halloween events at Grow Speke have gone down a treat with local people. Sadly, this year, coronavirus restrictions mean that we can’t hold our regular night of spooky celebrations down at the community garden, which last year saw families enjoy a whole evening of free, freaky fun. However, we never miss a trick, so this year, we’ve found a way to get the whole community involved from home.
Send us your pumpkin pics to win!
We’re inviting the whole community to send in pics of their pumpkins, with local MP Maria Eagle kindly volunteering to judge the competition. The lucky winner will receive £30 vouchers, with £20 vouchers for the two runners up.
Together with our friends at Grow Speke, we’re delivering 50 pumpkin carving packs to the doors of families who have regularly attended our community events, just in time for the big night! But don’t worry – you don’t have to be in receipt of a pumpkin pack to get involved.
How to carve the perfect pumpkin
To help everyone get started, Brendan and Colin from Grow Speke have produced this how-to video to get you carving your pumpkin like a pro. Your only limit is your imagination!
How to enter
Once you’ve completed your spooky masterpiece, simply take a photo and send it into firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘pumpkin’ in the subject line. The best designs will be shared on our Facebook page too. The competition will close on Monday 2 November.
Good luck, get carving and happy Halloween!
