Pumpkin Club Grand Weigh-in 1983

  • BCA - 2020.2440
  • Item
  • October 14th 1983

The annual weigh-in for the Pumpkin Club, October 14th 1983. John Buckingham aged 21 had the heaviest pumpkin at 142 lbs. John Simpson and Ron Bateman both from Radio Oxford were weigh-masters. One pumpkin was found to have concrete in the middle and was obviously disqualified but there were roars of laughter when the owner was said to be Mr U B Foulde aka Graham Taylor who had created it for fun. The junior section was won by Gerry Lea Markey. The marrow section was won by 13 year old Dale Stevens. Produce donated by locals was auctioned off after the weigh-in and was expected to raise about £300 for Bampton's elderly which would be distributed at Christmas.
