Longparish little School Pumpkin Show 2019
Dexter Wins the Carved Pumpkin Competition

Longparish Little School had a spectacular spooky pumpkin show on Saturday 19th October 2019.

Held at the village hall in Longparish, there was lots to do for visitors, including a trio of games for the children; hunt for the bugs, put a smile on the pumpkin and pumpkin bowling! The tombola and raffle were very popular as was the refreshments and the bookstall.

A fancy dress competition saw children dressed as princesses, dragons, knights, wolves and crocodiles!

The main event was the pumpkin competition, one for carved pumpkins and the other for decorated, the standard was high and there were pumpkins galore! Mrs Sykes from Longparish Primary School judged the competition.

The little people at Longparish Little School made an amazing pirate ship and island out of an enormous pumpkin donated to them by Longparish resident Jeremy Barber.

Dexter won the carved pumpkin competition with his fantastic dinosaur pumpkin.

Cassidy-Rose won the decorated pumpkin competition with her beautiful gold sparkly pumpkin.

The show raised a fantastic £300.
