Pupils at Christopher Rawlins CoE Primary School in Adderbury have been slicing and dicing pumpkins for a special Halloween-themed competition organised by Bloor Homes.

The school on Aynho Road is close to Bloor’s Feldon Chase development and a bright group of 30 Year Four pupils were asked to be as inventive as possible with their pumpkins.

After much deliberation from the panel of judges, they named eight-year-old Gemma Howard as the winner, with Liam Callaghan, eight, clinching second prize. Both pupils chose a spooky face design for their prize pumpkins.

Vanessa Macnee, regional sales director for Bloor South Midlands, said: “Congratulations to Gemma whose spectacularly spooky design saw her pip the rest to win an incredibly strong competition.

“Halloween is now one of the most exciting times for school pupils with all of the fun and frightful events which take place around the festival, so asking the children to carve their own pumpkins allowed them to really get in the spirit of things.

“It is clear to see that a lot of hard work and thought had gone into the pumpkins on display at Christopher Rawlins, and all of the children involved made an enormous contribution to the competition.”

The school is less than a mile away from Feldon Chase which features a stunning collection of four and five-bedroom homes launched by Bloor in February 2015.

Just two homes are currently available for sale at the development, the four-bedroom Caulke which is priced at £440,000, and the five-bedroom Branscombe, available for £595,000.

For more information about the homes available and the next phase coming soon at Feldon Chase, visit the marketing suite located on Aynho Road, which is open daily between 10am and 5pm.
