‘Pumpkin Carving with Peppa Pig!’…

Meadowdale Nurseries in Telford have announced today that there will be a very special guest at their pumpkin carving event on the 28th October, Peppa Pig! The event will start at 10.30am, where Peppa will be on hand to meet the children and help them with their pumpkin carving. She will also be selling a variety of Halloween themed cakes in aid of the Nurseries chosen charity, Severn Hospice.

To top all that, for the very first time, visitors to the Nurseries will be able to ‘pick their own’ pumpkins from Saturday 24th October. The family-run Nurseries, who have never grown pumpkins before, planted the pumpkins back in June, so that they would be ready in time for the Halloween season.

John Anderson, co-owner of the Nurseries, said: 

“We were very excited and relieved to see the pumpkins coming through. We have been growing plants for the last 27 years, but have never grown any kind of vegetables before, so we were delighted that the crop was successful and are hoping to expand it in future years. 

For the first time this year, the Nurseries have also been running a series of events and children’s gardening workshops over the Summer holidays. The workshops, which were aimed at getting children interested in ‘growing their own’ and gardening in general, have proved to be very successful and the Nurseries are hoping to continue this theme throughout the year. 

If you would like to attend the workshop on the 28th October, please telephone Meadowdale on 01952 502470 to pre-book a place. A small charge of £2.50 per child will be taken on the day, to cover costs and to allow for a donation to the Nurseries chosen charity, Severn Hospice. Children are more than welcome to simply visit Peppa Pig (without taking part in the Pumpkin Carving event) free of charge. 

Meadowdale Nurseries is open Monday – Saturday between 9am and 5.30pm and Sunday’s 10am – 4pm. It is situated on Wellington Road, Horsehay, on the A5223 (postcode TF4 2PU). From junction 6 of the M54 take the A5223 towards Ironbridge Gorge and the Nurseries are located on the right, immediately after Horsehay Village Golf Course.
