Pumpkinfest 2019

We held our annual end of year social on Sunday 27 October 2019, at the West Side marquee and a good gathering plotholders and their families came together for pumpkin soup, barbecue and drinks around the bonfire, to celebrate the end of the season. Thankfully after a week of rain, we caught a glimpse of the sun and had a dry evening.

A group of volunteers kindly put together the catering - soup, burgers, veggie things - all cooked by our expert chefs, Robert Jude and Enda Lavelle (and soup mistress Joanne Rickus).  

Beer, wine and soft drinks were also provided

The event kicked off at 5:30pm with the lighting of the bonfire, prepared by Peter Slater:


And of course there were award-winning pumpkins of all shapes and sizes in evidence:
