There were big ones, little ones and some very odd-shapes ones. If pumpkins are your thing then Belchford was the place to be last weekend.
The village’s second annual Pumpkin Festival was an amazing success, raising funds for the local church.
It was jointly organised by Marilyn Cotton and Dinah Ward (pictured) who are pictured above in front of a display of hand-carved pumpkins. The pumpkins proved to be a big attraction with a steady stream of visitors passing through the church doors.
There were some intricate carvings and judges faced a tough decision awarding prizes in the various categories.
Nathan Jones (7) from Horncastle, said: “I really enjoyed it. I liked the scary ones the best.”
Mrs Cotton said: “It was a major success and we’d like to thank everyone who helped.”
The two day event started with a special candlelit preview evening.
Apart from the pumpkins, there was an exhibition in the village hall featuring locally based fine food producers.
