A ‘pumpkin week’ is to launch on Monday (October 26) in Rothamsted.
Hosted by Rothamsted Enterprises, the week will host pumpkin-themed fun – including carving, colouring and quizzes.
Participants are also encouraged to enter the pumpkin photography competition, run in partnership with Harpenden mayor, Nicola Linacre. Entry costs £2 and proceeds will go towards the mayor’s two chosen charities – The Hearts Milk Bank and The Daylight Club.
The Hearts Milk Bank provides donor human milk to sick premature babies and mothers. Much like donated blood, donor milk can be life-saving.
The Daylight Club is a social club for adults with physical disabilities living in the St Albans district, and provides a safe and supportive environment for members.
