Nub News has announced its winner of the 2022 Halloween pumpkin carving competition, and there were lots of fantastic entries!
Eleanor and Olivia, ages 10 and five, from Macclesfield have won a hamper full of Co-op goodies.
The pair designed three pumpkins - a cat, mouse and ghost (pictured above).
Runners-up from the competition have also been announced.
Alissa Georgia, who lives in Crewe, and brother and sister Lincoln and Verity from Sandbach deserved a prize for their spectacular efforts.
Alissa created 18 pumpkins - including an I.T clown, Scream mask, spooky hand and a Pac man level.
Lincoln from Elworth, Sandbach aged eight (pictured below), suffers from Muscular Dystrophy, so he painted his pumpkin as he can't carve. His sister Verity carved her pumpkin.
The Co-op and Nub News would like to thank everyone who entered the competition for their efforts.
Alissa, Lincoln and Verity will also receive a runners-up prize.
