Halloween pumpkin grotto raises cash for air ambulance

James Harrison

Spooky goings-on in Little Marlow have been helping to raise money for charity with every fright.

In the week building up to Halloween, Emmetts Farm Shop in Marlow Road hosted its annual Pumpkin Grotto.

The business grows about 5,000 pumpkins every year, of which about 2,000 are sold on site.

And to help wannabe ghouls pick the best one for carving, the business sets up a special display.

Entry is free for the hundreds of youngsters who visit in preparation for the annual fright-fest, although donations are taken for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, which this year looks set to receive about £400.

Fiona Gerlach, the store's co-manager, said she was pleased to have had another successful year for the event.
