Yelvertoft Pumpkin Festival

25th October, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 31st October, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

To unite their village community during uncertain times, parent-led committee members of the Yelvertoft pre school are calling for entries for the 1st ever pumpkin festival.

Organiser and father of three, Jason Adams, is hoping to see imaginative pumpkin displays created throughout the village, leading up to Saturday 31st October, Halloween.

Jason commented that ‘The preschool committee wish to inspire everyone of all ages, to enter the competition and raise funds to provide the children with resources for our countryside setting’. ‘We are adopting the Curiosity Approach ethos, using natural and open-ended resources to invite children to explore, be inquisitive and play.’ ‘We want to wave goodbye to plastic and allow creativity to flow’.

The committee are grateful to B & A Dairies for their sponsorship towards the event. Ian Grimsley of B & A Dairies said ‘We are hugely supportive of the 2020 Yelvertoft pumpkin festival’. ‘The village of Yelvertoft has shown tremendous support towards the company and myself personally’. ‘I have been delivering milk and goods to the community and surrounding villages for the past 25 years.

Pumpkin displays of any shape or size, should be entered into the competition by midnight on Tuesday 27th October by visiting: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/pumpkinfest2020

On Saturday 31st October between 10 and 4pm, anyone wishing to explore the village displays can pick up a map outside of Elkins Close and cast their vote on who should be crowned the winning display.
