Parish Council Pumpkin Event

For the last nine years Ackworth Parish Council has invited local children to take part in the Parish Council’s annual pumpkin event, which sees children planting seeds in the spring then gathering in October to show off their pumpkins.

This event is supported by the Brackenhill Allotment Association.  

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic and following government guidelines, the Pumpkin Event 2020 had to be cancelled.

The event will go ahead all being well.  Pumpkin seeds will be made available from the Parish Council office from Monday 26 April 2021 between 9am - 2pm, for the local children who would like to take part. 

Registration for this event is required, giving your name and contact details via email info@ackworthparishcouncil.gov.uk, tel: 01977 611583 so that we can invite you to the October weigh in. (Covid-19 restrictions allowing).
