Pump-king results

Many thanks to all the residents and businesses that took part in our Pumpkin Carving Competition. Everyone had gone to a lot of effort and we were very impressed by the creativity and variety of the designs we saw.

The winner was 42 Kensington Road. The pumpkins were grown from scratch and there was added gruesomeness in the front garden. Well done! Your prize will be handed out soon.
