The Leek and Pumpkin competition has been going for several years with the entries mainly coming from clientele of the Eight Bells. The seedling plants were originally provided by David and Anne Bancroft, but sadly they are no longer with us and other enthusiasts now provide them. Each entrant is given one pumpkin plant and 2 or 3 leeks in the early summer and the produce is weighed or measured in October. Results vary greatly among both contestants and years! The heaviest pumpkin so far is about 84ib.
