The proceeds from the 2013 Ashdon Pumpkin Show were presented to charities at the Three Hills pub in Bartlow recently.

The show in October 2013, the 48th, raised £1,636, of which £1,536 was presented to Georgina Salmon from the Alzheimers Society and £100 to John Double from The Ashdon Charity.

Part of the proceeds came from a sponsored walk and also from a raffle held by the Ashdon Golfing Society.

Show organiser Mick Sadler also sold homemade horseradish sauce to raise extra money.

Pumpkin seeds are now on sale from Mick on 01799 584036 in readiness for the 49th show, which will take place on October 19 and this year be sponsored for the first time by Springwell Nurseries.
