Youngsters enjoy ghoulish pumpkin carving session in Spennymoor
1:34pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS practised ghoulish pumpkin carving in the run up to Halloween at a fun event held on a new housing estate.
Dunelm Homes created a pumpkin carving factory at its Thinford Gardens development, in Spennymoor, last weekend.
Artist Emma Shankland was on hand to show visitors how to carve the perfect ghostly face and all of the children received a free pumpkin to practice on.
Among the visitors who took part were Kelly Snowdon, and her daughter Eve Taylor, two, who moved onto Thinford Gardens recently.
Miss Snowdon said: “Eve had a wonderful time and really enjoyed seeing Emma create some amazing designs.
“She has had great fun coming up with ideas for her own pumpkin and it has been a great way to build the excitement in the run up to Halloween.”
Colin Willetts, sales and marketing manager at Dunelm Homes, said: “It was great to see so many children enjoying coming up with their individual designs.
“We are sure to see lots of well decorated homes with plenty of spooky pumpkins to celebrate Halloween.”
Dunelm Homes is running a pumpkin carving competition with an Amazon gift card as first prize.
To enter send a photo of your carved pumpkin to Dunelm Homes’ Facebook page or tweet @dunelmhomes.
