Follow the Trowbridge Chamber Pumpkin Trail this half term! 25 individually decorated pumpkins will be displayed in shop windows and other business around Trowbridge from Monday 24th – Sunday 30th October including our very own Trowbridge Information Centre, St Stephen’s Place, at the edge of the park.
PHOTO COMPETITION – Share your selfies with some of the pumpkins on the trail for a chance to win prizes! The best pumpkin selfies shared on facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #TrowbridgePumpkins will win prizes, including:
- Film tickets from Trowbridge Town Hall
- Sunday lunch for two at the Old Ham Tree Pub in Holt
- Massage and nail vouchers from Lisa’s Beauty Room.
Many thanks to Tesco Trowbridge for kindly sponsoring the pumpkins!
PUMPKIN DECORATION TIP – Rather than carving your pumpkins this year, why not decorate them on the outside instead? This way your pumpkin will last much longer and you can enjoy delicious pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup or other scrummy pumpkin recipes afterwards!
PUMPKIN WASTE – Every year, a colossal 18,000 tonnes of pumpkins end up in landfill – about 360 million portions of pumpkin pie! Let’s do what we can to help by eating our pumpkins instead!
NO-CARVE PUMPKIN DECORATION IDEAS – See here for inspiration for your no-carve pumpkin display – so much less mess than carving!!
We hope you enjoy the trail!
