Pumpkin carving competition results

This Halloween we set up a pumpkin carving competition on our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages and had some amazing entries. We offered 3 prizes consisting of £20, £10 and £5 in Thompson & Morgan vouchers and the winners have now been chosen.

The quality of carvings was very impressive, and it was quite hard to choose the winners, but three pumpkins really stood out from the rest:

1st prize – £20 voucher
Rebecca Baker sent in this picture of her intricately carved ‘Aztec’ pumpkin, which must have taken lots of time and patience to complete.

William Bannink’s ‘ET’ took us right back to the 80s. We just hope there were no ‘ouch’ moments while he was carving the pumpkin!
