Pumpkin carvings impress visitors at Little Horsted Church

Spectacular pumpkin carvings were on display at Little Horsted Church over the weekend.

The only light in the church last night and Saturday night was from the pumpkins and visitors were able to enjoy the sight with a glass of mulled wine, or squash for children.little-horsted-pumpkins-12

The aim of the event was to help raise money for the church restoration fund.  It was organised by Jenny Georges, whose husband Mike was selling tickets at the door last night. Many of the carvings were the work of their daughter Leah.

A total £75,000 is needed for heating – to protect the structure and walls from further deterioration caused by dampness – electrics; redecoration once the building has dried out sufficiently; pathways, disabled access and water supply.
