Pumpkin Carving Competition

Spooky season has finally arrived! Before you break out the carols and Christmas lights, let’s enjoy October for what it is. A time for tricks, treats and a brand new competition! For this October we’re going all the way with the spooky vibes and want you to join us. In between planting the rest of your autumn bulbs and preparing the garden for a scare or two, get some newspaper, a sharp knife and your little orange friend. Pumpkin carving is an incredibly fun activity for everyone that encourages creativity, garners admiration from neighbours and even uses those baking skills!

How to enter

Submit photos of your perfectly carved pumpkin! Feel free to let your creativity flow and carve your pumpkin however you want (bonus points if you do carve our logo!). We’ll be joining in the fun as well so stay tuned to our TikTok page to see our very own creation!
