Wow that was close! Congratulations to our two winners of the Cowley News pumpkin competition. After a close competition there were two clear winners; Hugo Zvigaitis from Headington, and Francesca Purcell from Rose Hill.
Purcell, from Rose Hill on receiving her prize said: “It was great fun; we drew the images on the pumpkins first and then carved, and we will be entering the competition next year”
Cowley News received 12 entrants this year’s family competition, and will be expanding the competition to include witches and goblins next year.
Hugo from Headington said “I’m really pleased with the prize and can’t wait to tell my friends”. Hugo’s secret was to use a black plastic bag in the inside of the pumpkin to create a darker, creepier appearance”.
Congratulations to you both.
