Shortly after celebrating completion of a very successful Pumpkin Day at Green Pastures, we’re now delighted to announce it was officially an “Award Winning Pumpkin Day!”
Since the birth of our annual Pumpkin Day back in 2010, we’ve always been staggered at the level of support from local families who’ve come and enjoyed themselves. We’ve always enjoyed growing the event every year to include something different and exciting and to win an award this time around has been the icing on the cake.
Garden Trade News Award
Garden Trade News is a trade magazine covering the whole of the UK’s garden centre industry. They run an award programme to celebrate who, in their opinion, are the top performing businesses in a variety of activities. We were over the moon when they presented us with the gold award for “Marketing Event of the Year” at a recent HTA Marketing Conference. The day was attended by some of the biggest names in our industry so were very proud.
Pumpkin Day 2016
With a bumper crop of our own home-grown pumpkins, we had plenty to play with this year. The Green Pastures team had fantastic fun preparing and taking part in this year’s Pumpkin Day event! And that’s not to mention how much they all enjoyed coming to work in costume! Amanda, Green Pastures Farm Shop Manager, single-handedly created a whole cast of Muppets for this year’s pumpkin hunt. These were a great hit with parents and children (and all our customers!) alike. Our Plant Centre team were busy helping children (and their parents!) carve pumpkin lanterns and the coconut shy and marshmallow toasting corner proved a popular haunt!
