2020 BUSHMERE ARMS GIANT PUMPKIN FESTIVAL GISBORNE CANCELLED.

It's with sad hearts we have decided to cancel the 2020 Bushmere Arms Giant Pumpkin Festival which was meant to be on the 29th March.

We have taken advice from many parties, and know that it is in everyone's best interests to keep as many of our community families and children as safe as can be by not holding events where viruses can spread easily.

It's a massive undertaking to grow a pumpkin and we are so grateful to our growers, so you can still have your pumpkin weighed at Bushmere Arms. Just phone Robin at the Bushmere Arms and he will organise a suitable time for a private weigh-in.

There will be no public event.

We will still accept colouring competition entries though and still have prizes. So feel free to download the entry form or get it from the Gisborne Herald and drop it into Farmlands Gisborne or to the Bushmere Arms before Sunday 29 March 2020. Might be a fun activity while we are all trying to self-isolate!

If you have grown a pumpkin - take a photo and send it to us as we would love to see it!

If you have bought an entry ticket and a pack of seeds, then retain your ticket and we will give you a new pack of seeds in October 2020 when we launch next year's competition.

So
1. The Giant Pumpkin Festival has been cancelled.
2. Call Robin at the Bushmere Arms if you would like to weigh your pumpkin.
3. Complete and drop-in your colouring comp!
4. Take a photo of your giant pumpkin and send it to us.
5. Retain your entry ticket for a replacement pack of seeds in October.
6. Stay safe out there!!

Thanks
Georgie
