THOUSANDS of people entered a competition to guess the weight of a large pumpkin.

Blue Hills Farm Shop, Birkenshaw, held its annual competition to guess the weight of the giant vegetable for a £50 cash prize.

Owner Judith Ives said 14,000 people entered the draw, which was won by Jacqueline Bonner.

Mrs Ives said: “The pumpkin weighed 21lb 12oz and Jacqueline was just 2oz out. She was over the moon – she didn’t think she would win.”
