It was a dark and stormy night

More than 40 beautifully carved pumpkins lit up the Sloop Studios on a dark, wet Halloween evening. We’d like to thank everyone for coming out and braving the weather to attend our very first pumpkin carving competition. We were so pleased with the range of entries from all ages and hope to make this a St Ives institution.

Congratulations to our winners
