The Great Pumpkin Smash

Green Your Halloween – Don’t trash it – Smash it!

The Great Pumpkin Smash is being launched at a Picking Patch near you on November 6th. At the Smash you will help us to put nutrients back into the soil and you can bring your pumpkins back to compost properly, rather than fall up more landfill. We could go on and on about the virtue of The Smash but as this is the Picking Patch we would rather talk about having fun!

At The Smash, you can get on the oche and play pumpkin darts, Don’t be bashful – have a go at the pumpkin shy, Anyone for gourd cricket or a game of bowls! The wheelbarrow derby, who can be the best loo roll mummy, campfire sing along and hot chocolate and marshmallows are all waiting for you.

The Great Pumpkin Smash is aiming to raise lots of money for Great Ormond St so please come and join us for an afternoon of fun, games and laughs!



Never miss a thing!
