Pumpkin carvingGet your knives and spoons at the ready. Our pumpkin carving competition is now live!

We’ve teamed up with the North Devon Gazette to deliver some festive fun for you this Halloween. Pay a small donation to our charity and get creative for a chance to win some tasty treats from Ilfracombe Chocolate Emporium.

Carve out your scariest or funkiest pumpkin and send it to the North Devon Gazette by midday on Friday 23 October for your chance to win. There are three age categories: 10 and under, 11-17 and 18+.

The winning entries will also have pictures of their pumpkins published in the North Devon Gazette on Wednesday 28 October, just in time for Halloween!
