It's that time of year where excited allotment owners scour their plots for pumpkins, marrows and carrots. As they rummage amongst the leaves squeals of delight can be heard and then grunts and groans as giant pumpkins are lifted into barrows and wheeled to St. Leonard's, Heath and Reach; St. Nicholas', Hockliffe; or St. Michael's in Eggington.
Below are pictures of some of the displays.
Noel visits the local care homes on a regular basis and by appointment. Here he is reading a Harvest Poem.
