Many thanks to all our pumpkin entries and a big thanks to Stan Robson who kindly gave his time to come and judge them.
To prove that trip to the dentist needn't be a scarey one, we are excited to launch our Halloween competition.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkins!
During October, use your imagination and carve your very own pumpkin design. Whether your design is a spooky face, a ghost or even a detailed carving of your smile– it’s completely up to you.
Bring your completed pumpkin into Ghyllmount by 12pm Fri 29th October for a chance to win our fabulous ‘crafty’ prize.
The winner will be announced on Mon 30th October so if you like; you can come and collect your pumpkin in time for Halloween on the 31st.
